Adolescent SBIRT Field Instructor and Preceptor Program. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends adolescent substance use screening and education as part of routine care, using the universal Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) process endorsed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with behavioral therapies, to provide a whole-patient approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Individuals receiving MAT often demonstrate dramatic improvement in addiction-related behaviors and psychosocial functioning.
The Institute for Wellness Education (IWE) created competencies and curriculum for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wellness Coaching Registered Apprenticeship Program. Training is online, self-paced, and led by experts. Approach is human-to-human and heart-to-heart. IWE empowers students to help their community live longer, healthier, and happier lives.
The purpose of the Certified Wellness Coach Training Program is to develop a cohort of trained community members of all ages, from teens to older adults, from professionals to lay people, who can influence and inspire those around them. They do this by modeling positive lifestyle choices, sharing accounts of their own wellness journey, and using evidence-based tools to help others reflect on their current state of health and wellness, and take action that works and fits for them.
Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral and Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based, public health approach to delivering early intervention to anyone who uses alcohol and/or drugs in unhealthy ways.
