SAOR Screening and Brief Intervention for Problem Alcohol and Substance Use

Next Training Day: Thursday, September 29th, Via Zoom

SAOR Screening and Brief Intervention for Problem Alcohol and Substance Use (2017)1 is a step-by-step guide for practice developed in response to problem alcohol and other drug use. The model can be used in a wide variety of settings, including community, statutory, voluntary, justice and education services. By following this model, many professionals and volunteers have been given the confidence and competence to screen for problem alcohol and drug use and either engage in a brief intervention or refer to specialist services if necessary.

SAOR training is delivered in a 90 minute eLearning module, once this is completed and certs forwarded on, participants move to a 1-day skills based workshop delivered live online. SAOR training is FREE.


To express your interest in the one-day, skills-based training, delivered online, please email your name, role, organisation, email address & possible dates to the address below. You will receive information on how to access the SAOR II eLearning element.

Upon completion of the eLearning, please email your certificate to stephaniekane@nedrugtaskforce.ie, Once we receive your certificate, you will be registered for the virtual training.
