Experimental: Online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Computer-based training for cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT4CBT) consists of seven modules, and includes a series of interactive videos presenting characters portrayed by professional actors struggling with real-life situations. These characters first experience a common risky situation or problem and then demonstrate the application of a targeted skill. The program further comprises games and interactive exercises to teach and model effective use of skills and strategies.

- Timeline Follow-Back (TLFB) [ Time Frame: 30 days ]Frequency (days) of substance use over the past 30 days
- Urine Toxicology Screen [ Time Frame: 30 days ]Determine substance use in past 30 days
- Addiction Severity Index (ASI) [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
Substance Use Disorder symptom severity
Subscale scores are calculated for 7 domains (medical, employment/support status, alcohol, drug, legal, family/social and psychological). Subscale scores are summed scores ranging from 0-1 with higher scores indicating greater problem severity.
- WHO Quality of Life (WHOQOL-BREF) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
Quality of Life
Subscale scores are calculated for 4 domains (physical health, psychological, social relationships and environment) and for "overall" and "general health" quality of life. Subscale scores have a range of 0 to 100 with higher scores indicating greater quality of life.
