An adaptation of “SnowControl”, an internet delivered intervention for problematic cocaine use, to an intervention for problematic methamphetamine use

There are limited treatment options for users of methamphetamines, with no approved pharmacotherapy. Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is effective but with very limited availability. Effective internet delivered treatment programs have been developed for users of alcohol and tobacco and with some promising data for illicit drug users. This project adapted an intervention originally designed for cocaine users (Snow Control) in Switzerland for Australian methamphetamine users. Focus groups were conducted with methamphetamine users on the revised site/intervention. Funding for a trial is being sought.
