Virtual SBIRT for Pediatric Primary Care: Increasing Access to Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment for Alcohol and Other Drug Use via Telehealth

This type I hybrid effectiveness-implementation pragmatic randomized clinical trial will examine how virtually-delivered Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (V-SBIRT) can be cost-effectively implemented in pediatric primary care to improve early identification and treatment for alcohol, other drug problems, and mood symptoms, among adolescents and compare its effectiveness with traditional SBIRT. KPNC pediatric primary care clinics will be randomized to Virtual-SBIRT vs. Traditional SBIRT modalities, and implementation and patient outcomes will be examined via electronic health record data.
