(9/30/1999 - 8/31/2002) Proposal Abstract
The aims of the study are 1) to empirically determine the underlying structure of each section of this questionnaire, 2) to determine the interrelationships of temporal and alcohol-related parameters of relapse, 3) to determine the interrelationships of relapse onset, relapse termination and abstinence maintenance characteristics and the relationships of these three domains to temporal and alcohol-related parameters of relapse and general treatment outcome, 4) to determine the consistency of relapse onset, relapse termination, and abstinence maintenance over time, and to examine how consistency and changes in relapse onset and abstinence maintenance are related to treatment outcome, and 5) to examine the generalizability of the Relapse Questionnaire scales across Clinical Research Units, treatments, gender, and ethnicity. These analyses will have many implications regarding ways in which alcohol treatment can become more effective.
