Welcome to the YSBIRT Resource Hub! In addition to the Improving Adolescent Health: Facilitating Change for Excellence in SBIRT change package, we have compiled the following resources to include white papers, fact sheets, toolkits, infographics, and educational materials to support SBIRT implementation and sustainability, as well as general knowledge of adolescent substance use.
