Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Alcohol, Smoking & Substance Involvement Screening Test (ASSIST) Score [ Time Frame: 3 months post-baseline ]
    The ASSIST's Global Continuum of Illicit Drug Risk was used. A higher score is considered more severe risk. The scores range from 0 to 308.

  • Hair Testing [ Time Frame: 3 month post-baseline ]
    The number of participants testing positive on Radioimmunoassay (RIA) Hair Testing for opiates, cocaine, amphetamine and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Drug Use Risk Assessment Battery Subscale [ Time Frame: 3 months post-baseline ]
    HIV Drug Use Risk Assessment Battery Subscale Score ranges from 0 to 22. A higher score is considered to be associated with higher risk.

  • Alcohol, Smoking & Substance Involvement Screening Test (ASSIST) Score [ Time Frame: 6 month post-baseline ]
    ASSIST's Global Continuum of Illicit Drug Risk Score which ranges from 0 to 308. A higher score is associated with higher risk.

  • Alcohol, Smoking & Substance Involvement Screening Test (ASSIST) Score [ Time Frame: 12 months post-baseline ]
    ASSIST's Global Continuum of Illicit Drug Risk Score which ranges from 0 to 308. A higher score is associated with higher risk.

  • Hair Testing [ Time Frame: 6 month post-baseline ]
    The predicted probabilities for testing positive on Radioimmunoassay (RIA) Hair Testing for opiates, cocaine, amphetamine and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), calculated from generalized estimating equations.

  • Hair Testing [ Time Frame: 12 month post-baseline ]
    Predicted Probabilities for testing positive on the Radioimmunoassay (RIA) Hair Testing for opiates, cocaine, amphetamine and THC, calculated from generalized estimating equations.

  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Risk Assessment Battery Subscale [ Time Frame: 6 month post-baseline ]
    HIV Drug Use Risk Assessment Battery Subscale Score ranges from 0 to 22. A higher score is considered to be associated with higher risk.

  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Risk Assessment Battery Subscale Score [ Time Frame: 12 month post-baseline ]
    HIV Drug Use Risk Assessment Battery Subscale Score ranges from 0 to 22. A higher score is considered to be associated with higher risk.

Primary Completion Date: December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Computerized Brief Intervention
Computerized one-session brief intervention for drug use
Behavioral: Computerized brief intervention
This is a brief computerized intervention focused on drug use of patients receiving primary care treatment in an outpatient setting. The intervention is delivered in one session.
Active Comparator: Counselor delivered brief intervention
This is a brief intervention focused on drug use delivered by a behavioral health counselor and based on motivational interviewing
Behavioral: Counselor delivered brief intervention
This is a one session brief intervention delivered in a primary care setting that is based on motivational interviewing.

Detailed Description:
Drug use is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Efforts to develop and rigorously evaluate methods to provide Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) for drug users are needed. Computerized screening and brief interventions in particular have the potential to circumvent some of the potential problems of integrating SBIRT delivered by a counselor into busy primary care settings. These interventions may reduce drug use among individuals who are using drugs but are not yet drug dependent.
