Why is SBIRT important?

  • SBIRT is effective. More than screening, SBIRT is an effective tool for identifying risk behaviors and providing appropriate intervention

How does SBIRT work?

  • SBIRT incorporates screening for all types of substance use with brief, tailored feedback and advice
  • SBIRT can be performed in a variety of settings. Screening does not have to be performed by a physician
  • Simple feedback on risky behavior can be one of the most important influences on patient behavior and change

What are the benefits of SBIRT?

  • Prevent disease, accidents and injuries related to substance use, resulting in better patient outcomes
  • SBIRT reduces costly healthcare utilization
  • SBIRT is reimbursable, billing codes are available in New York State
  • Many payers reimburse for SBIRT services
