Alcohol use is shown to have a significant effect on HIV medication. This study is testing a technology-driven intervention called “Project TRAC: Tracking and Reducing Alcohol Consumption,” to help people living with HIV/AIDS to reduce their alcohol use. The eight-session intervention will use a combination of videoconferencing, smart phones, and Bluetooth-enabled breathalyzers for monitoring of alcohol consumption.
This is a randomized trial of approximately 60 participants, some of whom will receive the 8-week Project TRAC intervention immediately, and others only after an initial 8-week assessment period. This study began on July 5th 2019 and is estimated to be completed in July 2022.
