Over 20 million Americans suffer from substance use disorders. In the next year an estimated 16 million American adults will have at least one major depressive episode. But we don't have to settle for these shocking statistics. At Wellscreen™, we strive to create a world where fewer people suffer from these behavioral health conditions.
Our team first recognized the potential of the SBIRT protocol when we designed an online SBIRT tool for United Way of Broward County and the Miami Coalition. Through this project, and others, we saw that screening and early intervention was changing lives. This motivated us to further improve our technology platform and create WellScreen.
Our initial goals for WellScreen were:
Today, healthcare providers, school districts, community colleges, youth programs, and juvenile justice programs use WellScreen to identify and intervene with youth and adults at risk of behavioral health conditions.
Through our partnerships, we bring high-quality, evidence-based tools to our clients.
The Brief Opioid Overdose Knowledge (BOOK©) assessment was developed and tested by Kelly Dunn, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. BOOK is fully integrated into WellScreen. We are the only online wellness technology to include BOOK.
WellScreen's Treatment Finder feature was developed in partnership with the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP). The Treatment Finder offers a curated treatment provider database that allows WellScreen to match and connect patients with high quality addiction treatment resources.
