Why Does the National Council Offer SBIRT Consulting? 

SBIRT consulting is at the heart of the National Council’s commitment to mental wellbeing, including recovery from substance use. We champion SBIRT because it stands out as an effective, evidence-based prevention and early intervention model and because we know that to harness the model’s full potential, mere one-off trainings are simply not enough. For sustained success, you staff not only needs to know how to administer SBIRT; they need to feel comfortable doing it.

Our consulting approach is built on the understanding, supported by research such as Bernstein et al. (2009c), that a well-trained team is essential for the routine and efficient administration of SBIRT. Through our expert guidance, we aim to ensure that SBIRT becomes an integral and proficiently executed part of healthcare service delivery in America.
