Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are at a higher risk of substance abuse than their heterosexual counterparts. It is important for primary care providers to be aware of this disparity, and have strategies to refer LGBT people to treatment at their disposal. Lee Ellenberg of the Massachusetts SBIRT Training and Technical Assistance Program will describe Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) in this webinar. Mr. Ellenberg will guide participants on when to use SBIRT and the efficacy of the intervention.
