Online Military SBIRT Training Program.

The Army's program is designed to identify military personnel whose risky alcohol use puts them, their units and their families at much greater risk of alcohol-related problems; to provide brief counseling to help them modify their risky behavior, and linkage to treatment and ongoing supports if brief counseling is insufficient.  More
