Engage

CaringTXT is an automated computer system that periodically sends queries and support messages through mobile phone short-message service (SMS) to users (young adult drinkers). Queries may include any of the following: plan to drink this coming weekend or week, willingness to set a goal to reduce drinking, number of drinking days in last week, max drinks on any one occasion, hours over which drinking occurred, injuries associated with drinking episode, blackouts or hangovers.

Involve

Support messages may include education about the dangers of drinking and norms of drinking, motivating statements to increase initiation or maintenance of low-risk drinking, and behavioral tools to assist self-efficacy and handling peer pressure. Queries and support messages use branching logic, where responses to queries are contingent on a user reports one of a number of expected potential fields.

Health Promotion

CaringTXT uses these dialogs to build a user-profile and generate periodic reports which can be provided to a user with tailored advice and further recommendations. Current health promotion programs for young adult drinkers is limited to lengthy, expensive, single-session web-based programs with limited evidence of lasting effectiveness in reducing hazardous drinking. This program solves the problem of providing health promotion over extended periods with young adults using a technology that is ubiquitous and native to young adults.
