Grant Enables Adelphi to Serve Region by Training Workers in Addiction Screening


Adelphi University’s Institute for Adolescent Trauma Treatment and Training was awarded a grant totaling nearly $900,000 to develop a multidisciplinary training protocol for professionals to identify and treat clients with substance use disorders.

The federal grant comes from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation.

The new partnership will bring together three schools at Adelphi University—the School of Social Work, the Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology and the College of Nursing and Public Health—in a collaborative project to train at least 600 community health and mental health providers to deliver the evidence-based protocol named Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT).
