About the Authors
  • Project MATCH was a large-scale treatment evaluation study established by the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse to determine whether the treatment of alcoholism could be improved by matching different types of alcoholics with the most appropriate kinds of treatment. This book, edited by the two principal investigators, is the first comprehensive report of Project MATCH, the largest alcoholism treatment study ever conducted. It describes the rationale, methods, results and implications of the study, and presents new findings about how treatment works, for whom it is most effective, and who does best in different kinds of treatment. It also offers some of the first scientific evidence of the effectiveness of Alcoholics Anonymous^DCO.

    • Detailed account of the largest ever treatment study in alcoholism, by the principal investigators
    • Shows the efficacy of main treatment approach
    • Presents first scientific evidence on the effectiveness of Alcoholics Anonymous
