Aims: To evaluate the efficacy of a telephone-based intervention consisting of four sessions of motivational interviewing (MI) and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) designed to assist individuals to reduce their cannabis use and related problems.
Design: Random allocation to intervention or delayed treatment control with 4- and 12-week follow-up assessments.
Setting: Counsellors from the Cannabis Information and Helpline (CIH), an Australian reactive telephone service, delivered the intervention to callers seeking treatment.
Participants: A total of 160 participants were recruited by the CIH, with 110 participants completing the final follow-up assessment (69% retention).
Measurements: Cannabis use, dependence and related problems and other substance use were assessed at baseline and follow-up. Findings Intervention participants reported greater reductions in dependence symptoms [P Conclusions: A brief course of motivational interviewing plus cognitive behavioural therapy delivered by telephone can help to reduce cannabis dependence and promote abstinence in the short term.
A brief course of motivational interviewing plus cognitive behavioural therapy, all delivered by telephone, can help to reduce cannabis dependence and promote abstinence in the short term.
