Substance use Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is a simple, time limited, cost effective practice that has been shown to decrease substance use, reduce readmission, lower costs, and improve outcomes among Emergency Department patients. Multiple implementation models indicate that SBIRT can be integrated into existing processes and easily molded to complement current standards of care.
