Talk Therapy by Phone to Promote Treatment for Alcohol Problems

Research Question:
Does talk therapy by phone promote the use of alcohol-related care and improve drinking outcomes?

Basic Study Information

Purpose:
A small percentage of individuals with alcohol use disorder (AUD) obtain alcohol-related care despite research showing that treatment is effective. This randomized controlled trial tests the efficacy of a brief, phone based cognitive behavioral intervention to increase treatment engagement, improve alcohol related outcomes, and show that treatment engagement is a mechanism for the improved outcomes in individuals with AUD. This study will also asses the impact of COVID-19 on alcohol use and other quality of life measures.
