Intervention trial to reduce alcohol-related harms among high risk young Indigenous Australians

 

Overview

This research project investigates the outcomes, and quantifies the benefit-cost, of a complex, multi-component intervention that combines cognitive-behaviour therapy with a community-reinforcement strategy to reduce substance-related harms among high risk young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. It is hypothesised that the benefits of this multi-component intervention will outweigh the costs.

Through the development of a more effective and acceptable intervention model for high risk young Indigenous Australians this research has the potential to not only prevent risks and harms amongst the young people, but also to promote positive developmental outcomes.
