We have facilitated the training, supervision, and implementation SBIRT in Massachusetts since 1994.

With much success, Project ASSERT at Boston Medical Center pioneered the health promotion advocate (HPA) model for using SBIRT in hospital emergency departments.  Find out more about Project ASSERT.

Years later, the Project ASSERT model was implemented in the emergency departments of six hospitals throughout Massachusetts.  Find out more about the Massachusetts ED SBIRT Initiative.
