Substance use disorders are costly to individuals, families, and communities. Misuse and addiction is a key contributing factor to the leading causes of death among teens and leads to negative health, social, and behavioral outcomes including physical and mental health problems, and difficulty achieving success in school and in the workplace.

NCMHJJ has been funded by the Hilton Foundation to see if the Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) framework, an effective model in healthcare settings, can be adapted to fit juvenile justice settings. NCMHJJ is working to build a SBIRT framework that incorporates the mental health and trauma needs of juvenile justice involved youth. If SBIRT is proven to be successful in juvenile justice settings, youth would be able to be paired with the appropriate level of services and organizations would be able to begin to identify the appropriate type of services needed in their treatment continuum
