Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of a 14-session behavioral intervention for HIV-infected and uninfected mothers with problem drinking. The intervention targets alcohol and drug problems, sexual risk behavior, and parenting. We hypothesize that mothers in the 14-session intervention condition will show improvements in alcohol and drug use, sexual risk behavior, and parenting in comparison to the control condition, which receives a one session brief video intervention.


Study summary:

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of a 14-session behavioral intervention for HIV-infected and uninfected mothers with problem drinking. We targeted 118 mothers of adolescent children (aged 11-18). The intervention is based on Social Action Theory (Ewart, 1991) and targets alcohol and drug problems, sexual risk behavior, and parenting. Mothers are followed and interviewed at four intervals over 18 months. Because we anticipate that the intervention will have effects on adolescent behavior, these youth are also enrolled and interviewed at three intervals over 12 months. Adolescents do not attend intervention sessions. We hypothesize that mothers in the 14-session intervention condition will show improvements in alcohol and drug use, sexual risk behavior, and parenting in comparison to the control condition, which receives a one session brief video intervention.
