Research Summary

Relative to individual treatments for alcohol use problems, couples' treatments have demonstrated greater improvements in relationship satisfaction and larger reductions in frequency and severity of domestic violence. However, a gap between research and practice in alcohol treatment exists to the extent that there has been poor community-based use of empirically-supported treatments for alcohol use problems. Our research examined barriers to entry into couples' treatment of alcohol.
