Development of a smartphone-based, self-administered intervention system for alcohol use disorders

Advances in mobile technology provide an opportunity to deliver in-the-moment interventions to individuals with alcohol use disorders, yet availability of effective ''apps'' that deliver evidence-based interventions is scarce. The authors developed an immediately available, portable, smartphone-based intervention system whose purpose is to provide stand-alone, self-administered assessment and intervention. In this article, the authors describe how theory and empirical evidence, combined with smartphone functionality, contributed to the construction of a user-friendly, engaging alcohol intervention. With translation in mind, the authors discuss how they selected appropriate intervention components including assessments, feedback and tools, that work together to produce the hypothesized outcomes.
