Intervention Details:
  • Device: Woebot-SUDs (W-SUDs)
    Woebot-SUDs (W-SUDS), an artificially intelligence-powered conversational agent on a smartphone app, eliminates most current SUDs treatment barriers while simultaneously leveraging technology to enhance user experience and engagement. W-SUDs expands and refines existing SUDs treatments by adapting skills from cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and dialectical behavior therapy.


Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test-Consumption (AUDIT-C) [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Post-treatment at 12 weeks ]
    The AUDIT-C is a widely used 3-item self-report screen for hazardous or harmful alcohol consumption that is based off of the 10-item original AUDIT.

  2. The Drug Abuse Screening Test 10 (DAST-10) [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Post-treatment at 12 weeks ]
    The DAST-10 is a brief, 10-item self-report assesses consequences related to drug abuse, excluding alcohol and tobacco.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Client Satisfaction Questionnaire (CSQ-8) [ Time Frame: Post-treatment at 12 weeks ]
    The CSQ-8 is an 8-item self-report scale measuring satisfaction with treatment.

  2. Usage Rating Profile Intervention Acceptability Subscale (URPI-usability subscale) [ Time Frame: Post-treatment at 12 weeks ]
    URPI-Acceptability Subscale is 6-item subscale from the URP Intervention Revised (URP-IR) scale. The URPI-Acceptability inquires about intervention acceptability. Responses range from 1= "slightly disagree" to 6="strongly agree". Scores are averages, with greater scores indicating greater intervention acceptability.

  3. Usage Rating Profile Intervention Feasibility Subscale (URPI-feasibility subscale) [ Time Frame: Post-treatment at 12 weeks ]
    URPI-Feasibility Subscale is 6-item subscale from the URP Intervention Revised (URP-IR) scale. The URPI-Feasibility inquires about factors that impact treatment usage (i.e., intervention quality). Responses range from 1= "slightly disagree" to 6="strongly agree". Scores are averages, with greater scores indicating greater intervention feasibility.
