graphic image

SBIRT is an evidence-based public health approach designed to motivate patients to commit to altering patterns of alcohol and drug use and to prevent, reduce, or eliminate personal and public harms. This pocket guide provides an overview and lays out the “dos and don’ts” of the SBIRT approach. Both motivational interviewing and SBIRT can be integrated into primary and specialty care settings. These cards were developed as a collaboration between the MidAtlantic AETC, the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
