Abstract

Counselling for Alcohol Problems (CAP), a brief intervention delivered by lay counsellors, enhanced remission and abstinence over 3 months among primary care male attendees with harmful drinking in a setting in India. We evaluate the sustainability of the effects after treatment termination, the cost-effectiveness of CAP over 12 months, and the effects of the hypothesized mediator of ‘readiness to change’ on clinical outcomes.
