The SCALA Study changes from a 2-arm to a 4-arm design

The project has taken the decision jointly to change the SCALA study design from 2 to 4 study arms, in order to be able to give more precise information about what works (and what doesn't) in increasing screening and brief interventions in primary care for alcohol and co-morbid depression.
