Behavioral Health

NORC has substantial and growing expertise in almost every facet of behavioral health research. This includes the integration of primary care and behavioral health services, innovations in financing and reimbursement of behavioral health treatment, military behavioral health, performance metrics, value-based purchasing, and policies and practices around patient privacy and confidentiality.

NORC has been especially active in substance use research, with an emphasis on research and training concerning Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT). To help combat risky behavior in the military, NORC and its partners are integrating SBIRT into the Army Alcohol Screening and Brief Intervention System.
