Abstract

Excessive substance abuse in young adults could develop into addiction. A possible cost-effective intervention that could reduce excessive alcohol consumption is Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM). However, this intervention causes a low motivation to train. This study will examine the effects of performing a CBM intervention. Participants (n = 64) completed a CBM training either on a computer or on their mobile device. Performing the CBM on a smartphone led to more completed CBM training blocks. No change in alcohol approach bias and alcohol use were found.
