The SBIRT pocket card was developed for use as a guide during a brief alcohol or substance abuse intervention with patients. One side of the card includes a standard drink chart, low-risk alcohol consumption chart, screening questions to determine probable risk, a definition of risk categories and recommended actions. The other side identifies misuse through a five-step intervention procedure, includes a summary of key interviewing techniques and provides a readiness-to-change scale to share as a visual aid with patients.
