Abstract:People with a Mild or Borderline Intellectual Disability (MBID) who use substances have an increased chance of getting a Substance Use Disorder (SUD). Despite this, most addiction treatment is focused on people without an intellectual disability. Tactus Verslavingszorg has developed two SUD treatment protocols for people with MBID, which are still very text-based. We developed an interactive video in which users can choose how they would reply if someone offers them their substance of choice. The feedback of the test subjects was evaluated, and based on that we drew the conclusion that the concept has enough merit to warrant further research and development. We provided starting points for future research, amongst which a quantitative replication of this qualitative research, as well as research on how to proceed in the development of a treatment module containing interactive videos.
