Report, 45pp.

The purpose of this report is to calculate the cost of alcohol Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) in three primary care practices located in the Matanuska-Susitna area. Using Fleming et al. (2000)’s benefit-cost ratio of screening and brief physician advice in managed care settings, we estimated the dollar benefits potentially generated by SBIRT services.
