    Project ACT is a five-year research study conducted in partnership with Brown University. This study, funded by NIAAA, evaluates the effects of two different interventions (motivational interviewing with significant other participation vs. individual motivational interviewing) on reducing alcohol consumption and alcohol-related problems among adult patients presenting in the Rhode Island Hospital trauma unit who were either alcohol positive or met screening criteria for alcohol problems.
