Adolescent SBIRT

Helping social workers and nurses prevent adolescent substance use

Adolescent SBIRT Curriculum

As key members of an adolescent’s healthcare team, practitioners in the fields of nursing, social work and interprofessional care have an obligation to help prevent and reduce substance use with their young patients. Asking about substance use and discussing its impact can prevent many harmful effects to the adolescent’s developing brain and potential future.

The next generation of nursing, social work, and interprofessional education students need to learn the necessary skills to have these essential conversations. In response to this need, NORC in partnership with AACN, CSWE, and Kognito developed the Adolescent Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) Curriculum to assist educators to seamlessly implement adolescent SBIRT training into your course(s) for FREE.

As an educator or trainer, you can access the entire skills-based Adolescent SBIRT Curriculum, which includes:
