SBIRT — Referral to Treatment

Evidence suggests that approximately 3% to 5% of patients screened will require a referral to either brief treatment or specialty care. The severity of illness determines the level of care.

This may include one or more of the following:

  • Outpatient Services
  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Services
  • Psychiatric Treatment
  • Residential/Inpatient Services
  • Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
  • Detoxification
