Brief Summary:
This study will investigate whether BI and technology extenders are feasible and acceptable for female patients at a reproductive health center (ages 18-29).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Alcohol and Substance-Related Mental Disorders Sexually Transmitted Diseases Behavioral: Brief Intervention (BI) with Technology Extender Other: Brochure Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This study will assess the feasibility and acceptability, and obtain initial evidence of the efficacy, of the BI and technology extenders. At-risk women drinkers (N = 50) recruited from a RHFP clinic will be assessed, randomly assigned to the integrated BI or control (a CDC-produced brochure with information about alcohol and women's health), and reassessed at 3 months to determine impact on alcohol use, condom use, and number of partners as well as hypothesized mediators.
