Applying SBIRT to Depression, Prescription Medication Abuse, Tobacco Use, Trauma and Other Client Concerns

National SBIRT ATTC

06/11/2014

Meeting: Behavioral risks and disorders are responsible for 40% of deaths, $300 billion in healthcare costs, and $600 billion in additional expenditures yearly in the United States. The US Preventive Services Task Force and other authorities recommend screening and intervention for tobacco, alcohol, drugs, depression, and obesity, but few healthcare settings deliver these services in an evidence-based manner. The major barrier is provider and staff time. With funding from SAMHSA and AHRQ since 2006, the Wisconsin Initiative to Promote Healthy Lifestyles and its spin-off, Wellsys, LLC, have helped dozens of clinics implement systematic behavioral screening and intervention (BSI).
