Event Description:
A brief intervention for alcohol use is a short, helpful conversation that focuses on assessing, and if necessary, assists a person to consider and alter their alcohol/drug consumption. Brief interventions have shown to be effective in initiating change in alcohol/drug consumption for people with mild to moderate related problems and in helping people with more significant difficulties to access specialised alcohol/drug treatment services.

The SAOR Model has been adopted by the HSE as the model-of-choice for delivering brief interventions.
