Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.


We developed and pilot tested a 2-session motivational interviewing intervention for substance use among 14- to 18-year-old medical patients. Recruitment and retention were more challenging than anticipated. A substantial number of completers reduced their use of substances and risk of driving after drinking during the 3-month follow-up period.
