Behavioral: Brief Telephone Counseling for risky aclohol use
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.
