This intermediate workshop presents cutting-edge research and training in the clinical application of the evidence-based practice of screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) for alcohol and other drugs in primary health and mental health care settings. Participants explore the practical implications of and challenges of using SBIRT in diverse behavioral health care settings. The workshop focuses on the knowledge and skills essential to the delivery of motivational interviewing (MI) and its central
