CBHRS associate professor Dr. Diane King (co-investigator) and research professional Alex Edwards (project manager) are collaborating with psychology professor Dr. Patrick Dulin (principal investigator) on a clinical trial to reduce drinking. Funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism,  study participants will test either a smart-phone app or a chatbot version of an evidence-based program called Step Away.  If interested, participant enrollment is now underway.  To learn more about Step Away check out this interview with Dr. Dulin.

This project was also picked up by KTVA with a recently published article on the subject!
