Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT)

SBIRT is a comprehensive, integrated, public health approach to the delivery of early intervention and treatment services for persons with substance use disorders, as well as those who are at risk of developing these disorders. Primary care centers, hospital emergency rooms, trauma centers, and other community settings provide opportunities for early intervention with at-risk substance users before more severe consequences occur.

SBIRT NC, a statewide resource for information, resources, and coordination, is a joint effort of the Governor’s Institute (GI), the NC Division of Mental Health, Development Disabilities, and Substance Abuse Services (DMHDDSAS), SAMHSA/CSAT, the NC Center of Excellence for Integrated Care, and Community Care of North Carolina.
