SAOR: Screening & Brief Intervention for Problem Alcohol & Substance Use

SAOR Screening and Brief Intervention for Problem Alcohol and Substance Use (2017) is a step-by-step guide for practice developed in response to problem alcohol and other drug use. A brief intervention for alcohol use is a short, helpful conversation that focuses on assessing, and if necessary, assists a person to consider and alter their alcohol consumption. Brief interventions have shown to be effective in initiating change in alcohol consumption for people with mild to moderate alcohol-related problems and in helping people with more significant difficulties to access specialised alcohol treatment services. The SAOR 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 eLearning module followed by 2 half day skills based workshops delivered live online.

SAOR training is FREE.
