Can drinking be reduced in a single session?


Drug and Alcohol Findings

Type: Article
Region: Republic of Ireland

Key points from summary and commentary The featured study investigated the effectiveness of single-session brief alcohol interventions among college students. Brief interventions were found to be consistently more effective than alternative or no interventions; the largest effects were associated with personalised, interactive, and motivational approaches. The statistically significant benefits were modest in clinical terms. However, the authors suggest this could nonetheless â?ointerrupt the trajectory from heavy drinking to alcohol use disorderâ?.
