By means of self-monitoring and experience sampling methods, ecological momentary assessment can obtain the real-time data from the daily-life of subjects efficiently and accurately, including factors of substance use, craving and context, as well as emotions. Combined with modern mobile technology, it can assess the subjects’ behavior of substance use in real-time comprehensively, which has unparalleled advantages over traditional standardized assessment, hence it becomes increasingly popular in the addiction field. Therefore, many researchers began to apply ecological momentary assessment to clinical intervention to provide real-time and more targeted instruction and training for patients.

Key words: substance use, ecological momentary assessment, experience sampling method, intervention.
