Overview: The 2011 Institute of Medicine report titled “The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People” argues persuasively that there is a need for more attention to these subpopulations from clinical, research and policy perspectives.

With that in mind, webinar attendees will:

  • Appreciate the social geography of substance use for LGBTQ populations
  • Understand the ways that substance use relates to broader health disparities
  • Consider the ways that local contextual knowledge can improve SBIRT implementation

Background: Studies indicate that, when compared with the general population, LGBT people are more likely to use alcohol and drugs, have higher rates of substance abuse, are less likely to abstain from use, and are more likely to continue heavy drinking into later life (SAMHSA, 2012).

But those are national-level data. How does this look at the local level? How do local patterns of use impact our approach to SBIRT?
