Experimental: DynamiCare Motivation Support Program
Intervention Group members will receive 32 weeks of remote Contingency Management (CM; financial motivational incentives), Recovery Coaching, substance testing, appointment reminding/tracking, and in-app Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). After 32 weeks, coaching, testing, appointment tracking and CBT will continue until an overall 12 months in the project is completed.
Combination Product: DynamiCare Motivation Support Program
DynamiCare is an evidence-based, multi-service platform that combines software, smartphone and pocket-sized alcohol and drug testing hardware, and recovery services, designed to remotely deliver evidence-based methodologies to facilitate people's motivation and accountability to overcome alcohol, nicotine and other drug use disorders, whether in formal treatment or not.
Untreated or Routine Care Control Group
Control participants will receive substance tests at the same frequency as Intervention participants, and the same incentive amounts for tests as treatment participants. Controls' payments, however, will not be contingent on positive/negative results, but rather only on valid, on-time submission. Controls will not receive coaching, CBT or rewards for appointments.
Other: Untreated or Routine Care Control Group
No specific intervention, i.e., research participation plus any community-based treatment the individual seeks to obtain.
- Alcohol Use [ Time Frame: 32 weeks ]The primary outcome measure is alcohol use, in terms of the number of weeks of abstinence confirmed by DynamiCare Breathalyzer tests and self-report.
- Engagement [ Time Frame: 32 weeks ]Percent of available funds earned as a composite measure.
- Retention [ Time Frame: 32 weeks ]Monthly rates of retention in the program.
- Drug Use Clinical Effectiveness [ Time Frame: 32 weeks ]Measured by DynamiCare saliva drug test results and weekly self-report.
