  • To compare the efficacy of AB-CASI (Automated Bilingual Computerized Alcohol Screening and Intervention) to SC (standard care) in the reduction of alcohol consumption in unhealthy drinkers.

Hypothesis 1

  • At 12 months, AB-CASI will be superior to SC in reducing the number of binge drinking episodes and the mean number of weekly drinks over the last 28-days.

Aim 2

  • To compare the efficacy of AB-CASI to SC in the reduction of alcohol-related negative health behaviors and consequences.

Hypothesis 2

  • At 12 months, AB-CASI will be superior to SC in reducing alcohol-related negative health behaviors and consequences (episodes of impaired driving, riding with an impaired driver, injuries, arrests, tardiness and days absent from work/school).

Aim 3

  • To compare the efficacy of AB-CASI to SC in 30-day treatment engagement.
