Incentives to Reduce Alcohol Use and Improve Housing Outcomes
This study is for formerly homeless individuals currently housed at Catholic Charities in Spokane (Buder Haven, Fr. Bach Haven, Donna Hansen Haven). This study utilizes a behavioral intervention called contingency management, in which participants receive gift cards for making their appointments and providing blood samples consistent with a reduction in alcohol use and/or sustained abstinence. Blood samples are collected by finger prick, much like a diabetic does for checking blood sugar. Alcohol use is then determined by alcohol-related markers in the blood. The study requires participants to answer questionnaires in addition to providing blood and urine samples at weekly to monthly interviews for up to 6 months. If you are interested in learning more about the study and to find out if you are eligible, please call (509) 818-7024 or fill out the contact information sheet below and we will contact you.
