Reducing binge drinking among disadvantaged men through a brief intervention delivered by mobile phone: a multi-centre randomised controlled trial

Disadvantaged men binge-drink frequently and are at a far higher risk of experiencing alcohol-related harm. The challenge for tackling harmful drinking is that the uptake of public health interventions among socially disadvantaged men is low. This study will test the effectiveness of an intervention aimed at reducing the frequency of binge drinking among young to middle-aged disadvantaged men. Intervention is delivered through a series of interactive text messages with images sent to mobile phones. It will help the men to realise that they are at risk from their drinking and motivate them to change behaviour. It will also increase their self-confidence to refuse drinks, encourage them to make a commitment to drinking less and support them to continue a pattern of reduced binge drinking.
