In July 2012, the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) was awarded a five-year grant to provide Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT IOWA) services by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT). SBIRT IOWA uses a comprehensive, integrated, public health approach to incorporate universal screening into medical practice and within the Iowa Army National Guard (IAARNG) to identify, reduce, and prevent hazardous alcohol or drug use. SBIRT IOWA programs were implemented at four Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC’s) in Black Hawk, Polk, Scott, and Woodbury counties of Iowa as well as at Camp Dodge, home of Iowa’s Army National Guard. Co-located substance use disorder professionals work with each site. These staff also conduct brief interventions, brief treatment sessions, and make referrals for substance use disorder treatment. The Iowa Consortium for Substance Abuse Research and Evaluation (Consortium) conducts the evaluation for the SBIRT IOWA project.
