Constructive and thoughtful discussions are taking place in primary care clinics, behavioral health centers and judicial systems to explore connections between substance use and health.
Hear lessons learned from implementing SBIRT in a variety of locations and what you can take back to maximize your program and meet the needs of the populations you serve.
