Substance Misuse Can be Prevented & Treated

Medical visits can be “teachable moments” when patients may be receptive to the idea of adopting healthier behavior. Hospitals and clinics become ideal venues for early identification and intervention for substance use issues by making the most of on these “teachable” moments.

MU-ADEPT is a program for training healthcare providers to use these “teachable” moments to address substance misuse using SBIRT, a nationally recognized, evidence based approach designed for efficient use in medical settings.

What is SBIRT?

SBIRT is short for Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment. It is a nationally recognized, prevention oriented and evidence based approach geared to help patients make positive changes and reduce risky behaviors before they become a problem.

Why train with us?

Training is available to faculty and community providers for free CME and CEU credits and is integrated into the curriculum for MU residents and students. Technical assistance for implementation in clinical settings can also be provided.
