Sacramento, California 95814


Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to determine whether brief motivational interviews reduce the likelihood of driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI).


Study summary:

Despite extensive legislative, law enforcement, and public awareness efforts, driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) remains a major cause of mortality and loss of years of productive life. A brief motivational interview (BI) is a non-confrontational, patient-centered discussion during which the individual's motivation and confidence to change health-related behaviors are explored. Previous studies of BIs in health care settings suggest that BIs administered after hospitalization for alcohol-related injury reduce the likelihood of repeat injury hospitalization and arrest for DUI.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Second or greater arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol - Arrest involved operation of a motor vehicle - At least 18 years of age - English-speaking Exclusion Criteria: - Arrest involved injury to another person - Previous participation in this study
