Adolescents often experiment with alcohol. Excessive use at this age can lead to health problems, school dropout and addiction problems in later life. In these cases, early intervention is important. Training or re-training cognitive processes relating to alcohol can be effective in helping adolescents get a grip on and decrease their alcohol use, but this kind of treatment is often perceived as being boring and taking too long. Wouter Boendermaker investigates whether serious gaming could offer a solution in this regard.
