Relevance to General Practice

In the counselling environment, a well-established therapeutic alliance provides the necessary foundation for delivering a wide range of treatment interventions that enhance treatment outcomes. In the health environment, brief interventions are often delivered opportunistically to raise client’s awareness of the issues associated with their substance use.




Screening and brief interventions act to raise or highlight substance use as an issue and are designed to be delivered opportunistically or during regular consultations. Though short in duration, brief interventions can be delivered in one to five sessions, they can last from a few seconds to an hour. Brief interventions are effective when delivered by generalist health professionals as well as specialists.
