SAOR Screening and Brief Intervention for Problem Alcohol and Substance Use (2017)1 is a step-by-step guide for practice developed in response to problem alcohol and other drug use. The model can be used in a wide variety of settings, including community, statutory, voluntary, justice and education services. By following this model, many professionals and volunteers have been given the confidence and competence to screen for problem alcohol and drug use and either engage in a brief intervention or refer to specialist services if necessary.
SAOR training is delivered in a 90 minute e-Learning module followed by a 1-day skills based workshop delivered live online.
SAOR training is FREE.
The Western Region Drug and Alcohol Task Force are co-ordinating the roll out of SAOR© Brief Intervention for Alcohol Use in the Western Region.
