Launch SBIRT for Adolescents

The Course Content

The purpose of this course is to enhance knowledge of Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) that is necessary so practitioners have the skills to identify and address the needs of young individuals who are using alcohol or other drugs in a risky manner. At completion, you will have learned how to use the evidence-based practice of SBIRT for adolescent populations.

Included are eight content videos that range from 12-17 minutes in length, totaling approximately two and a half hours of video. Each video is followed by a short quiz with a total of 15 questions. The course takes about 3-4 hours to complete.
