Interactive Motivational Media for Perinatal Drug Abuse
The goal of this exploratory/developmental proposal is to develop a low-cost, highly adaptable brief motivational intervention for perinatal drug abuse via embedding motivational principles in a self-contained interactive computer system. The Motivation Enhancement System (MES) will utilize a touch-screen, audio enhancement, and an interactive narrator to guide women in the immediate post-partum period through evaluation (thus facilitating self-report) and a one-time motivational intervention. A taxi voucher will be provided to further facilitate entry into treatment, and multiple tailored self-help mailings will be issued following discharge. If validated, this intervention could offer a highly cost-effective, replicable, and prescriptive method for increasing self-change and treatment involvement in drug abusers. Following development of the MES, a preliminary pilot phase will study the use of the MES with post-partum drug-using women and make necessary modifications, using data from participant debriefings and a single-case research design. After optimization of the MES, a clinical trial will randomly assign 120 post-partum drug-using women into treatment or assessment only conditions, with a 3-month blinded follow up to evaluate intervention effects on drug use and treatment involvement. Toxicological and self-report measures, as well as objective analysis of infant development, will be utilized. Participants will be lower socioeconomic status urban women.
