Screening, Brief Interventions, Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) for Illicit Drug and Alcohol Use at Multiple Healthcare Sites: Comparison at Intake and 6 Months Later
The effectiveness of screening and brief interventions (SBIs) for alcohol is well documented, but there is less research on the effectiveness of SBI for illicit drug use. In 2003, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration initiated the largest SBIRT service program to date. This study is a secondary data analysis that compares the use of illicit drugs at intake and 6-month followup for nearly 460,000 people involved in the SBIRT program.
