I attended Hazelden Betty Ford’s Professionals in Residence (PIR) program in 2002. I started the week thinking I was going to be a family physician—I was a resident at the time—but was hooked on addiction (bad pun intended) by the end of the experience. And so began my odyssey to an eventual career in addiction medicine.

I returned to PIR as faculty in 2009 and have been teaching for the program ever since. I lecture on Screening, Brief Intervention & Referral to Treatment (SBIRT—not to be confused with Ernie and Bert!).

My slide set has evolved considerably over the years. This blog post contains the latest and arguably greatest.
