BTI (Brief Therapeutic Intervention) motivates individuals admitted to ED (Emergency Department) for acute intoxication to take actions to prevent further alcohol-related issues. The present project aims at underpinning this intervention by actively involving patients in the monitoring of their alcohol-related risk following discharge. While several web-based preventive interventions towards alcohol already exist, the repeated delivering of PNF (Personalized Normative Feedback) using mobile technology after a BTI constitutes a novel approach to reduce alcohol-related harms. Investigators propose to test the effect of a mobile PNF following a BTI delivered by a psychologist during an ED visit for alcohol intoxication. The mobile PNF will be additionally delivered once a month in the 6-months period after discharge, and once every two months in the following 6-month period, via a smartphone application connected to a central server. The study will include 18-26 years old adults, as this population includes most active students and is often lost to follow-up after ED visits; and aims the reduction of heavy drinking occasions, as this issue account for most of alcohol-related ED visits in this population.
