Last modified: February 17, 2021

UnitedHealthcare is sharing substance use screening, brief intervention and referral to treatment (SBIRT) tools and resources to help Florida patients get the right care at the right time. Explore this training module for insight and resources on identifying substance use disorders with patients and ways to apply SBIRT in your practice.

SBIRT is an evidence-based practice used to identify, reduce and prevent problematic use, abuse and dependence on alcohol and drugs. You can use it as part of a prevention evaluation during routine physicals, initial prenatal contact or other patient consultations. These screening tools help you identify patients who may need additional behavioral health care and guide conversations about treatment options.
