Lay Description

We are seeking Spanish-speaking individuals currently in or seeking treatment for substance use. The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of a computer delivered web-based form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. You will be asked to attend up to 13 visits with the researchers or study staff from UTHSCSA. These visits are conducted virtually via Zoom. If you are assigned to the CBT4CBT group, there will be asked to complete up to 8 modules on the CBT4CBT web-based platform. These modules may be completed on your own time by logging in to the web-based platform (cbt4cbt.com) and will take approximately one hour to complete. Most people complete one module per week, and you may choose the order in which you complete them. Participants in the study are eligible to receive compensation for their time.
