SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, & Referral to Treatment)

The intervention aims to motivate individuals towards positive change and to think differently about their use. High-risk users are provided with referrals to appropriate treatment. Cost: $75


This program consists of a 50 minute small group discussion led by a counselor followed by a 50 minute individual session 1-2 weeks following the group.

This program consists of 2, one-hour individual sessions with a counselor. The program is designed to assist participants in examining their own substance use behavior by reviewing their alcohol and drug consumption patterns, history, and related issues.

BASICS 3 may be substituted for DARMA, depending on the number of participants. Cost: $295

Clinical Substance Use Evaluation

During an evaluation a counselor will gather and review the participant’s substance use and bio-psychosocial history. They will look at the full picture of the participant’s life, including aspects that protect them from harm and those that can create risk. Formal assessment tools are used, including those that help to identify mental health diagnoses. Findings and recommendations are provided in a written report. Cost: $250
