Individualizing incentives to Maximize Recovery
Washington State University is recruiting people aged 18-65 who have schizophrenia, schizoaffective, bipolar or major depressive disorder and want to cut down or stop using alcohol for a study in Seattle and Spokane, WA. This study is examining a behavioral intervention, called contingency management, to help individuals reduce their alcohol use and initiate abstinence. Study participants receive gift cards as rewards for providing alcohol-negative urine and breath samples as well as gift cards for their participation. Participants will receive Contingency Management at no cost. The study requires participants to attend 15-60 minute visits 2x/week for 20 weeks at our Sound (Seattle) or Frontier Behavioral Health (Spokane) locations. At visits, participants will provide urine samples and answer questionnaires, with 4 follow up visits over the course of a year.

Incentives to Reduce Alcohol Use and Improve Housing Outcomes
This study is conducted by Washington State University for formerly homeless individuals who are currently in stable housing, are 18 years or older, and want to cut down or stop using alcohol. The behavioral intervention utilized in this study is called contingency management, in which participants receive gift cards for attending their telehealth appointments and providing blood samples consistent with a reduction in alcohol use and/or sustained abstinence. Alcohol use is determined by alcohol-related markers in the blood. Blood samples are collected by pin-prick, much like a diabetic does for checking blood sugar. The study requires participants to answer questionnaires in addition to providing blood samples at interviews 1-4x/month for 6 months with a follow-up interview 12 weeks after completing the intervention. Participants will be compensated $20-30 for each visit. If you are interested in learning more about the study, please call PRISM at (509) 818-7024 or fill out the contact information sheet below and we will contact you.
