SONY DSCThrough our Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) grant, folks are given a brief assessment which inquires as to individual’s substance use in primary care and emergency room settings.  People who screen positive (or who are self-referred) are able to access an array of treatment services.  In general, services can be grouped into seven categories: Crisis, Support, Inpatient, Outpatient, Medical/Pharmacy, Residential and Rehabilitation.

Outcomes have shown a reduction in alcohol use, improvement in quality-of-life measures (like employment), housing stability, lower arrest rates, and a reduction in risky behaviors, including fewer unprotected sexual encounters.
