Impact of Personalized Feedback Alone on Substance Use Behaviors
Brief Education to Reduce Health Care Consumers' Risky Substance Use Behaviors: How Brief is Brief?

Screening and brief intervention (SBIRT) generally involves universal screening for risky substance use behaviors in medical settings and the immediate provision of a 3-15 minute intervention to those found to be at risk. In this pilot study, we seek to develop a more efficient and effective approach to providing brief behavioral health interventions in the field by comparing a brief coach directed intervention to a tailored report only group. The goal is to create a cost-effective and sustainable system that provides consumers with tailored information that will help them both initiate and sustain the lifestyle changes necessary for improving their overall health.

Hypothesis 1: In a medical setting, personalized feedback alone will be associated with a reduction in risky substance use behaviors.

Hypothesis 2: In a medical setting, personalized feedback alone will have the same impact on behavior as that information plus a brief coach education session on risky substance use behaviors.

Risky Alcohol and Other Substance Use Patterns
  • Behavioral: Personalized feedback report
    Participants receive the personalized feedback report but no additional education.
  • Behavioral: Personalized feedback report plus education
    Persons receive both a brief education session and the personalized feedback report. This is the currently implemented service approach.
  • Active Comparator: Personalized feedback plus education
    Treatment as usual with participants receiving a personalized feedback report about the risks associated with their current substance use behaviors and a brief (5-15 minute) motivational interviewing based education session provided by a trained health coach.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Personalized feedback report plus education
  • Experimental: Personalized feedback report alone
    Provision of the personalized feedback report alone.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Personalized feedback report
