The survey study will assess characteristics and needs of up to 1000 adults who receive services at the Oklahoma City Homeless Alliance Day Shelter (Aim 1). The second aim of the survey study is to characterize tobacco and e-cigarette use patterns, tobacco history, past cessation attempts and assess interest in tobacco cessation and tobacco harm reduction intervention approaches. A 2-armed sub-study (N = 60) will characterize reductions in cigarette smoking following the provision of an e-cigarette device (JUUL) with supplies and the ability to earn financial incentives for switching over from combustible cigarettes to e-cigarettes exclusively.

This 3-armed NIH R01 is a randomized clinical trial that will use an innovative smartphone application to identify and address barriers that prevent recently incarcerated homeless adults from obtaining available case management, crisis management, substance abuse, and mental health services.

This 2 phase NIH Funded R34 aims to develop and test a “just in time” adaptive intervention to reduce alcohol use in homeless men and women. Phase I utilizes smartphones and passive sensing technologies to monitor geolocation, psychosocial variables (e.g., stress, affect, urge to drink), and alcohol use (SCRAM). Phase II will use this information to provide tailored treatment messages that anticipate and intervene to prevent drinking and heavy drinking.
