A Nurse-Delivered Brief Motivational Intervention for Women Who Screen Positive for Tobacco, Alcohol, or Drug Use: An Intervention Manual for Project START (Screening To Augment Referral and Treatment)
Name: A Nurse-Delivered Brief Motivational Intervention for Women Who Screen Positive for Tobacco, Alcohol, or Drug Use: An Intervention Manual for Project START (Screening To Augment Referral and Treatment)
Description: This manual has been written to guide a nurse’s delivery of a brief motivational intervention for women who screen positive for tobacco, alcohol, or drug use in reproductive health care centers. The intervention is part of an overall approach called Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment(SBIRT) that is being implemented as part of a National Institute on Drug Abuse funded grant called Project START (Screening To Augment Referral and Treatment). The manual describes how the study nurse will intervene with women who are using tobacco, drinking in harmful or hazardous ways, misusing prescribed medications, or using illicit drugs to: (1) motivate them to stop using these substances or to reduce their use to less problematic or prescribed levels; and (2) refer them to treatment services. Treatment services for the purposes of this project include formal substance abuse treatment programs, self-help or 12-step programs, health care providers, and medication management.
