OBJECTIVE To assess the benefits of matching alcohol dependent clients to three different treatments with reference to a variety of client attributes. METHODS Two parallel but independent randomized clinical trials were conducted, one with alcohol dependent clients receiving outpatient therapy (N = 952; 72% male) and one with clients receiving aftercare therapy following inpatient or day hospital treatment (N = 774; 80% male). Clients were randomly assigned to one of three 12-week, manual… Expand

UK Alcohol Treatment Trial: client-treatment matching effects.
TLDR
The findings strongly support the conclusion reached in Project MATCH in the United States that client-treatment matching, at least of the kind examined, is unlikely to result in substantial improvements to the effectiveness of treatment for alcohol problems. Expand
The Combined Effects of Treatment Intensity, Self-Help Groups and Patient Attributes on Drinking Outcomes
TLDR
Testing a set of hypotheses relating to the effects on drinking outcomes of treatment modality, modality matching, treatment retention, aftercare, self-help group participation and patient attributes at admission found outcomes for inpatient and outpatient treatment were equal. Expand
A Mediation Analysis of Treatment Processes in the UK Alcohol Treatment Trial
TLDR
The quality of delivery of the same treatment tasks in both treatments studied transcended the impact of delivering treatments according to different theoretical underpinnings in UKATT and indicated that therapist quality of specific tasks influenced outcomes. Expand
Interaction Effects of Treatment Setting and Client Characteristics on Retention and Completion
TLDR
Examination of differences in demographics and substance-related problems in populations admitted to three substance abuse treatment settings and whether interactions between client characteristics and type of setting predicted rates of 30-day retention and treatment completion found three hypotheses received at least partial support. Expand
A Randomized Trial of Personalized Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Alcohol Use Disorder in a Public Health Clinic
TLDR
In the context of a public health service, the effectiveness of individualized treatment targeting risk mechanisms identified during pre-treatment assessment was not confirmed and some evidence was found for improved treatment response to the implementation of a manualized craving module when pre- treatment craving was high. Expand
The impact of free choice in alcohol treatment. Primary outcomes of the self-match study.
TLDR
The hypothesis that outcome is improved if clients choose their own treatment, was not supported, but an important finding is that client self-matching is just as beneficial as expert matching. Expand
Client Factors that Influence Outcome in Problem Gambling Treatment
This study examined various client related factors that may predict problem gambling (PG) treatment outcomes (i.e., treatment completion and continued abstinence). Specifically, factors that mayExpand
Social Support in Alcohol Dependence and Social Phobia: Treatment Comparisons
Objective: This study investigated whether different alcoholism treatment approaches differentially impact social support scores in individuals with concurrent alcohol dependence and social phobia.Expand
Coping mediates the effects of cognitive–behavioral therapy for alcohol use disorder among out‐patient clients in Project MATCH when dependence severity is high
TLDR
End-of-treatment coping mediated the positive treatment effects of cognitive-behavioral therapy on 1-year drinking outcomes among out-patient clients when dependence severity was high, but not when dependence severe was low or moderate. Expand

Variation in alcoholism treatment orientation: differential impact upon specific subpopulations.
TLDR
The generalizable conclusions were that females had significantly better outcome (78% abstinent) when treated according to a medical orientation and male alcoholics achieved similar abstinence rates in Medical and Rehabilitation orientations. Expand

TLDR
People who selected AA only for treatment were of lower socioeconomic status than outpatients, and were functioning better than those who opted for treatment in inpatient or residential settings. Expand

Matching treatment focus to patient social investment and support: 18-month follow-up results.
TLDR
Results suggest that dose of relationship enhancement should be determined after assessing patient relationships, and that ERE treatment was significantly more effective in increasing abstinence of patients entering treatment with a network unsupportive of abstinence or with a low level of investment in their network.

Increased Effectiveness of Substance Abuse Treatment: A Prospective Study of Patient‐Treatment “Matching”
TLDR
The matching effect was seen in both the alcohol-and drug-dependent samples and in all treatment programs and the application of these findings to other types of patients and treatments in substance abuse and other fields of psychiatry is discussed. Expand
The reliability of Form 90: an instrument for assessing alcohol treatment outcome.
TLDR
Good-to-excellent reliability was found for all key summary measures of alcohol consumption and psychosocial functioning, and most frequently used illicit drugs had moderate reliability. Expand

TLDR
These five groups of subjects demonstrated no differences on demographic characteristics but significantly differed on Alcohol Use Inventory subscales, a temptation to drink and abstinence self-efficacy measure as well as several outcome variables. Expand
The effect of social investment on treatment outcome.
TLDR
It is suggested that patients with low investment should be treated in an extended cognitive behavioral modality, while relationally enhanced CB treatment should be limited to high investors who are likely to experience support for their abstinence following treatment. Expand
