You will complete an interview by video conference (for example: Zoom) and then again two more research interviews 3 and 6 months later. During these interviews, you will speak with a Boston University research staff member about your alcohol use, quality of life, and daily activities.
For 2-week periods at the beginning of the study and again 3 months later, you will answer brief questions (2-3 minutes) several times a day about your mood and drinking behaviors on your phone.
You will be asked to collect a small blood sample using an easy and safe device.
You may be randomly assigned to participate in video conferencing calls approximately every 2 weeks (or up to 7 calls over 3 months) with a study counselor to help support your daily life and activity goals.
You may be given a Fitbit activity tracker and asked to wear it every day of the 6-month study. This device will be yours to keep.
All study activities are done over the phone or by video conference. There are no in-person meetings. You do not have to travel to participate.
You will be compensated up to $475 for your participation.
There is no cost for you to participate in this study.
