Abstract

In the present study, N=88 children, adolescents and young adults were examined in the emergency unit of three municipal hospitals, who were receiving inpatient treatment there in the year 2008 due to acute alcohol intoxication (AAI). The sample consisted of 49% female (MD=16 years old) and 51% male patients (MD=17 years old). With regard to twelve months prevalence, it was the first AAI for 71% of the patients up to 16 years old, whereas for 47% of patients older 19 years it was at least the tenth AAI. All patients received a brief motivational intervention (BMI) which was designed to encourage them to seek youth-specific counselling after receiving hospital standard care. Of 88 youth, 15 (17%) accepted this offer, and 78 of 88 adolescents (89%) took part in a telephone-based 6-month follow-up. In an intent-to-treat analysis, alcohol prevalence (g/l for the last 30 days) decreased from t1 (M=544, SE=102) to t2 (M=2, SE=0.12). Therefore, the BMI under study appears to be effective in principle, is currently being manualised, and will be tested in a randomised-controlled study.
