SBIRT: Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment
Young people in Georgia are gaining access to health insurance at historic levels, creating new opportunities to increase access to essential prevention and treatment services. At the same time, misuse of and addiction to alcohol and drugs blunt the potential of too many young Georgians.
Together, GCSA and GHF are working to improve access to SBIRT, especially for youth ages 15 to 22 across the state. The project aims to improve access and insurance coverage for SBIRT by increasing both the number and type of locations where youth can access those services, and increasing the number and type of professionals who can conduct screening and brief intervention.
