Intervention Details:
    Behavioral: Brief Telephone Counseling for risky aclohol use
    Two brief sessions (30-40 minutes) of brief counseling using a motivational interviewing approach. The counseling session are delivered by telephone and focus on the alcohol use of inuured ED patients who randomize into the treatment arm of the study. Patient who randomize into the controla rm of the study receive standard emergency department care only plus study assessments.
Detailed Description:

Alcohol related motor vehicle crashes (MVC) continue to be a substantial public health problem. Brief interventions for alcohol (BI) for injured ED patients have been demonstrated to be effective, and perhaps more so for MVC patients.

Telephone interventions have been utilized in varying ways in health care. We compared the delivery of two brief interventions by telephone against an assessment only condition. Participants who received the BI and the assessment only condition were contacted 3 and 12 months after recruitment. Data about alcohol use, injuries and high risk behaviors, including drinking and driving behaviors were collected at the 3 and 12 month follow-up assessments.
