Alcohol Risk Pyramic

How To Talk To People About Alcohol and Drug Use

Screening, Brief Intervention & Referral to Treatment (SBIRT)

SBIRT is an evidence-based practice used to identify,
reduce, and prevent problematic use, abuse, and
dependence on alcohol and illicit drugs for non-mental health professionals. It includes an upstream model that
helps to create a conversation about alcohol and
substance use which has been shown to help people
reduce their use to healthier levels.  It has also been
shown to help increase the probability that someone
struggling with addiction will seek more extensive or specialized treatment as needed.

Coming Soon

9:00 am until 5:00 pm 

Free for College of Charleston Students and Staff
Community costs $40.00. 

Training fees will be used for materials and for
Mental Health Initiatives at CofC
