Treatment Research Validation and Extension Program

This project was designed to extend knowledge about factors associated with relapses to drinking after treatment. A specific focus was on replicating and extending the Marlatt conceptual model of relapse. Several articles describing the results of this study were published in a special supplement of the journal Addiction (1996). Investigators from RIA, Brown University, and the University of New Mexico collaborated on this multisite study. Funded by a contract of $689,660 from NIAAA, 1991-2000.
