Description

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) developed a tool to identify youth ages 9-18 at risk for alcohol-related problems. The Alcohol Screening & Brief Intervention (SBIRT) screener can detect risk early, is empirically based, and fast to administer. The questions can be asked during an annual examination, an acute care visit, or in the emergency department. SBIRT also can be used with patients whom you have not seen in a while, have conditions associated with an increased risk for substance abuse, health problems that might be alcohol-related, or show substantial behavioral changes. For younger patients, begin by asking the patient whether their friends engage in any drinking. Since the transition from middle to high school increases the risk for early age drinking, select questions that align with the patient’s grade level. In addition to healthcare settings, schools also can use SBIRT.

Download the guide for details about how to use SBIRT. For example, it is suggested to use brief motivational interviewing strategies. The four basic principles of motivational interviewing include expressing empathy, developing discrepancy, rolling with resistance, and supporting self-efficacy.
