Presentation abstract: Unrecognized substance use and mental health problems expose employers to unnecessary costs for health insurance and lost productivity. To address this, EAPA endorsed Screening and Brief Intervention (SBI) as a standard of practice. By adapting this evidence-based model for use in EAPs, employees receive assistance before these problems jeopardize their health or employment. This presentation will describe the process of implementing SBI into a traditional EAP, as well as evidence of improved recognition of issues among employee-clients. Attendees will gain competence in the use of these delivery programs and learn accurate estimates of prevalence of common problems in EAP practice.
