What is SBIRT


About Us

SBIRT South Florida

Through the use of validated screening tools, SBIRT classifies clients by level of risk and provides an evidence base to inform future intervention or treatment. Many different types of community settings provide opportunities for early intervention with at-risk substance users before more severe consequences occur, and SBIRT South Florida is committed to increasing implementation across these settings regionally. SBIRT is the low cost, flexible, and evidence based screening protocol to accomplish this. 

SBIRT practices are being promoted on a tri-county regional basis through the South Florida Coalition Alliance to promote child wellness. These practices are research-based and recognized and promoted through SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) and other national entities. SBIRT has been proven effective in screening for children’s alcohol and substance abuse, and providing for appropriate levels of intervention and referral to treatment. SBIRT South Florida aims to reduce adolescent substance use in by increasing the number of youth serving health and service providers using SBIRT.
