Contracting for CKF staff to deliver SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment) is available on-site for medical facilities. This service would allow CKF staff members to be present in the medical facility to provide SBIRT, referrals, and brief crisis counseling for patients identified as having a substance use disorder.
Since 2011, CKF Addiction Treatment has been involved in providing screening and care coordination in acute care settings, which currently include Salina Regional Health Center (Salina, KS) and Stormont Vail Health (Topeka, KS). Data from a research study with the Baker School of Nursing and Stormont Vail Health supports that CKF Addiction Treatment staff being integrated into medical settings can improve care and decrease recidivism for high-risk substance users from an organizational and patient standpoint.
Our staff our trained to navigate the network of available resources while meeting with patients to build engagement and create access to services. Each organization has different needs that CKF Addiction Treatment will address through a contract to outline the best fit for that organization.
In working with other medical organizations we have discovered and established successful processes and protocols for SBIRT implementation. Our services are available for those health care organizations who believe they have the need for our staff to provide services in their facility.
