Screening Brief Intervention Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) in New Mexico

2014-08-27 03:13:22 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness in reducing drug use and its associated problems of a brief intervention for drug use delivered by a behavioral health counselor as compared to a brief intervention delivered by a computerized intervention.


Drug use is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Efforts to develop and rigorously evaluate methods to provide Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) for drug users are needed. Computerized screening and brief interventions in particular have the potential to circumvent some of the potential problems of integrating SBIRT delivered by a counselor into busy primary care settings. These interventions may reduce drug use among individuals who are using drugs but are not yet drug dependent.
