Join us in a community wide effort to implement alcohol and substance abuse screening, intervention, and referral to treatment into our current medical model in Hancock County. This 4-hour advanced SBIRT traning will be broken into two sessions. The first hour will aim to provide the necessary tools required to implement the screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment aspects of the SBIRT program. The second session and remaining three hours will focus on the clinical approach towards identified patients as well as how to bring the program into action.
The first part in a series on addiction, Addiction: Heroin and Pills, is a documentary produced by WBGU, Bowling Green, Ohio, focusing on the epidemic in Northwest Ohio.
Our local efforts in Hancock County have contributed to this series.
