Abstract or Summary
  • The Change in Alcohol Consumption of Important People to Clients measures the relationship between outcomes of clients’ alcohol treatment and the changes in alcohol consumption by important people (IP) in clients’ social networks. The prevalence of alcoholism in America continues to negatively impact individuals and society, yet few people with alcohol use disorders are experiencing recovery support and treatment. In the literature, numerous studies investigate if and how social variables influence clients’ outcomes in alcohol treatment; however, there is a paucity of research that addresses if and how clients’ outcomes influence the alcohol consumption of important people who may also struggle with alcohol abuse or dependence. The Project COMBINE database and IP instruments (from the 16-week treatment period) were used for this study, and a total of 688 clients were included. The Chi-square and Cramer’s V tests revealed no statistical significance between the two variables. These results suggest a need for future research to address: diverse client-IP samples, involvement of IP in treatment, demographic data for client-IP, identification of each IP, the potential delay of influence of clients’ outcomes on IP, and additional client-IP associations that inform addictions counseling, counselor education, and supervision.
