Technology-based contingency management to promote smoking cessation


Contingency management (CM) is one of the most efficacious interventions to promote drug abstinence. Under CM interventions, desirable consequences such as goods or services are provided contingent on objective evidence of abstinence. Traditionally, CM has been delivered in person so that clinicians could confirm abstinence and provide access to additional therapeutic services. Now, new technologies not only permit remote confirmation of abstinence, but also remote delivery of incentives. I will discuss several technology-based tools to monitor cigarette smoking, and new ways to deliver CM to promote abstinence. These new tools have the potential to dramatically increase access while maintaining high levels of treatment fidelity. They also allow new ways of arranging contingencies that harness natural, online communities and consequences. Overall, there are unprecedented opportunities to link technology with CM to promote smoking cessation.
