Computer-Facilitated Substance Use Screening and Brief Advice for Teens in Primary Care: An International Trial [pdf]
Primary care providers need effective strategies for substance use screening and brief counseling of adolescents. We examined the effects of a new computer-facilitated screening and provider brief advice (cSBA) system.
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. Learn about SBIRT and the different steps involved in the approach.
MASBIRT trains medical providers, behavioral health providers, public health service providers, and healthcare support staff to conduct Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) services to address the spectrum of unhealthy substance use (i.e., alcohol, prescription drug, illicit drug, tobacco).
American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Substance Abuse
The Committee on Substance Abuse (COSA) produces guidance for pediatricians, state and federal government, and other stakeholders to reduce harm from substance use.
SAMHSA: Integrating Behavioral Health into Primary Care
Primary care settings have become a gateway for many individuals with behavioral health and primary care needs. To address these needs, many primary care providers are integrating behavioral health care services into their setting. Models have emerged that include the use of care managers, behavioral health consultants, behavioralists, or consultation models. CIHS monitors activities and models around the country in order to share best practices with the primary and behavioral healthcare professionals.
