This program (short title SBIRT) provides grants to implement screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment services for adolescents and adults in primary care and community health settings with a focus on screening for underage drinking, opioid use, and other substance use.

Among other things, this program is intended to expand and enhance the continuum of care for substance use disorder (SUD) services and reduce alcohol and other drug (AOD) consumption, reduce high-cost service utilization, and promote sustainability and the integration of behavioral health and primary care services through policy changes that promote access to generalist and specialist care.

Specific expectations and required activities are listed in the application instructions.

SAMHSA intends to make an equitable distribution of awards in terms of geography (including urban, rural, and remote settings) and balance among populations of focus and program size.
