“The Practitioner’s Guide for Alcohol Screening & Brief Intervention” for Youth

While studies show that screening and brief motivational interventions, like SBIRT, can reduce alcohol consumption, only a small proportion of individuals under 21 are screened for alcohol use and advised of the risks. Among the 62% of 18-20 year olds who saw a doctor in the past year, only 25% were asked about drinking and only 12% were advised of health risks. CCSHM hopes to make more physicians aware of the effectiveness of routine screenings to identify and counsel underage drinkers, so is making “The Practitioner’s Guide for Alcohol Screening & Brief Intervention” for youth , available here.
