SBIRT ~ Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral for Treatment

All Massachusetts Public Schools are now required to implement the SBIRT screening program. The Attleboro Public Schools will be screening students in Grades 7 & 9, according to the recommendations by the Mass Department of Public Health.  This screening is a brief and confidential conversation with students. The goal of the program is to let the students know that there is staff available to reinforce healthy decisions and to assist them in obtaining support if needed for substance use related problems.
