Adolescent Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (A-SBIRT) Training Workshop
A-SBIRT for Adolescents is a comprehensive, evidence-based process for early substance use intervention for adolescents. The SBIRT model identifies, reduces, and prevents problematic substance use in adolescents, at risk for or with current substance use disorders. The primary goal of Adolescent SBIRT is not to diagnose and treat substance use disorders; but rather, to promote prevention messages, address low to moderate risk early on, and facilitate effective referrals to treatment for those who may benefit from a diagnostic assessment and/or specialty care. The overall aims of SBIRT for youth include: increase early identification of adolescents at-risk for substance use problems; motivate those at risk to reduce or stop unhealthy, risky use and adopt behavior change; motivate individuals to seek help and increase access to care for those with (or at risk for) a substance use disorder; link to more intensive treatment services for adolescents at high risk; and foster a continuum of care by integrating prevention, intervention, and treatment services. Primary Audience: Principals, Assistant Principals; Counseling and Support Staff- No Charge for participants from CAS member schools.
