Identifying Substance Use Early Saves Lives! - SBIRT with Motivational Interviewing Training

Maine continues to see deaths from opiate use increase. Rates of opiate use are highest in the 18-25 year old group and data from those entering treatment suggest that the majority begin using before the age of 17. Maine AAP is committed to helping practitioners identify youth on this path earlier and intervening earlier! Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment is one evidence based approach to doing this. Maine AAP will be offering several trainings throughout the state over the next 6 months. Please consider joining us to enhance your skills in identifying and offering brief interventions in the primary care settings for youth on the path to substance use disorders.

The Maine AAP will be offering one day Saturday sessions in several regions of Maine, providing training and coaching to Pediatricians and Pediatric Specialists in SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment) and effective conversational skills in Motivational Interviewing.
