Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Computerized Brief Intervention
Computerized one-session brief intervention for drug use
Behavioral: Computerized brief intervention
This is a brief computerized intervention focused on drug use of patients receiving primary care treatment in an outpatient setting. The intervention is delivered in one session.
Active Comparator: Counselor delivered brief intervention
This is a brief intervention focused on drug use delivered by a behavioral health counselor and based on motivational interviewing
Behavioral: Counselor delivered brief intervention
This is a one session brief intervention delivered in a primary care setting that is based on motivational interviewing.

Detailed Description:

Drug use is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Efforts to develop and rigorously evaluate methods to provide Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) for drug users are needed. Computerized screening and brief interventions in particular have the potential to circumvent some of the potential problems of integrating SBIRT delivered by a counselor into busy primary care settings. These interventions may reduce drug use among individuals who are using drugs but are not yet drug dependent.
