Adapting Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) for Youth in Multiple Settings: Research Highlights

Tuesday, October 18, 2022 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Abt Global presented new research and held an in-depth conversation among leading practitioners and researchers from the field of youth substance use prevention. Research on SBIRT in adolescents has been limited to date despite positive outcomes reported in adults. This webinar highlighted some of the articles included in the Journal of Adolescent Health's October 2022 supplement, SBIRT for Adolescents and Young Adults: Critical Issues for Practice, Policy, and Strengthening the Substance Use Continuum of Care. The discussion focused on youth SBIRT implementation challenges and outcomes across pediatric primary care, school-based, and community-based settings. Sharon Levy, MD, MPH, Director of the Adolescent Substance Use and Addiction Program at Boston Children's Hospital, moderated the event.
