Substance Abuse: SBIRT Program


Albany Medical Center’s substance abuse “SBIRT Program” is aimed at providing early diagnosis and treatment of substance misuse and abuse disorders. SBIRT, which stands for “Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment,” is an evidence-based validated system for providing early intervention. The program is focused on training physicians (residents as well as faculty) how to utilize SBIRT resources to become proficient in recognizing substance misuse and abuse disorders and dealing with them appropriately and effectively.
