Effect of early, brief computerized interventions on risky alcohol use and risky cannabis use among young people (project description)
Young people defines as aged 15 to 25 years who are high or risky consumers of either one or both of alcohol/cannbis.
Risky use of alcohol or recreational drugs among young people remains a prominent public health issue (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, 2010). The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has argued for a public health approach to prevent alcohol and recreational drug abuse, using interventions that provide assistance and counselling. This approach provides services at an early stage to drug and alcohol users who are at risk but who remain socially included (United Nations, 2003).
The objective of this review is to assess the effectiveness of early, brief computerized interventions on alcohol and cannabis use by young people aged 15 to 25 years who are high or risky consumers of either one or both of these.
