    This excuse has been around for too many years. No one ever says, “Well, if they are ‘not comfortable’, or ‘don’t have the training’, why haven’t they gotten the training and become comfortable!” Physicians have mandatory CEs to take – they should use some of them on BH/SUD. States are comfortable mandating such training for LCSWs, why not for MDs. If the MDs are not trained, then they should get training, or refer all their patients to a trained LCSW who can do the screening for them!

    The only good news here is that if the same survey was conducted even 10 years ago, the numbers of MDs doing BH/SUD screenings would probably be less than 25%.
