The last few decades have seen increasing use of computer-based programmes to address illicit recreational drug use but knowledge about their effectiveness is limited. We conducted a systematic review to examine evidence on these programmes. Eight electronic databases were searched to identify primary research studies evaluating computer-based programmes to prevent or reduce use of illicit recreational drugs. From an initial 3413 extracted studies, 10 were identified for inclusion, covering a range of intervention types, target groups and settings. Universal drug prevention programmes were effective in reducing the frequency of recreational drug use in the mid-term (
A systematic review of computer-based programmes for recreational drug use.
Universal programmes reduced use in the mid-term only ( Those targeting drug users were mainly effective post intervention and mid-term.
Computer-based programmes have potential in addressing recreational drug use.
More long term research is needed to better understand the duration of effects.
