Project Match Therapy Manuals
Volume 1-Twelve Step Facilitation Therapy Manual
Describes twelve step facilitation therapy in which the overall goal is to facilitate patients’ active participation in the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. The therapy regards such active involvement as the primary factor responsible for sustained sobriety (“recovery”) and therefore as the desired outcome of participation in this treatment program. This therapy is grounded in the concept of alcoholism as a spiritual and medical disease.
Volume 2–Motivational Enhancement Therapy Manual
Describes motivational enhancement therapy (MET), a systematic intervention approach for evoking change in problem drinkers. MET is based on principles of motivational psychology and is designed to produce rapid internally motivated change. This treatment strategy does not attempt to guide and train the client, step by step, through recovery, but instead employs motivational strategies to mobilize the client’s own change resources.
Volume 3–Cognitive-Behavioral Coping Skills Therapy Manual
Describes cognitive-behavioral coping skills therapy, which is based on the principles of social learning theory and views drinking behavior as functionally related to major problems in the patient’s life. Emphasis is placed on overcoming skill deficits and increasing the patient’s ability to cope with high-risk situations that commonly precipitate relapse. The program consists of 12 sessions aimed at training the patient to use active behavioral or cognitive coping methods to deal with problems rather than relying on alcohol as a maladaptive coping strategy.
Volume 4-The Drinker Inventory of Consequences (DrlnC)
Presents a psychometric instrument, the Drinker Inventory of Consequences (DrInC), developed in support of Project MATCH to assess the adverse consequences of drinking. Presents the background and rationale for the development of the DrInC, the scale construction and item analysis, its test-retest reliability, test procedures, and the test forms.
Volume 5–Form 90: A Structured Assessment Interview for Drinking and Related Behaviors Test Manual
This publication was originally developed for use in Project MATCH, a multisite clinical trial of three psychological treatments for alcohol abuse and dependence, funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Form 90 is a family of assessment interview instruments designed to provide primary dependent measures of alcohol consumption and related variables. The interviews produce a continuous daily record of drinking and documentation of related variables from a 90-day baseline period through the last followup point.
Volume 6-Improving Compliance with Alcoholism Treatment
This manual provides a compendium of strategies for enhancing client compliance to psychosocial treatments, as well as therapist compliance with treatment protocols, in treatment and research programs involving alcohol-using populations. Many factors affect compliance, and the authors have addressed a wide range of patient needs. The volume consists of two parts. Part 1 is directed to both clinicians and clinical researchers, with points of particular interest to researchers identified. Part 2 focuses on strategies for enhancing therapist compliance in treatment delivery through the use of treatment manuals and careful supervision of the therapists delivering the intervention.
Volume 7-Strategies for Facilitating Protocol Compliance in Alcoholism Treatment Research
This monograph describes methods for facilitating research compliance in a multisite clinical trial. Practical strategies are offered for retaining participants in trials and for gathering accurate data in a timely manner. Specific examples from Project MATCH are used to illustrate methods of enhancing research compliance. The volume also presents a new organizing framework for addressing compliance problems, a detailed description of numerous compliance strategies, and a systematic way to deliver these strategies.
Volume 8 – Hypothesis: Results and Causal Chain Analysis
In this, the final volume of the Project MATCH Monograph series, the editors and chapter authors address aspects of the Project MATCH findings absent from previous publications. Matching was a promising approach for alcoholism treatment from the 1970s through the mid 1990s but, after MATCH reported no compelling support for the concept, many puzzling issues were raised. Why were relatively few significant matches found? Why were the effects of these matches small in size and inconsistent across time, outcome measure, and setting? How well developed were the theories underlying the matching hypotheses? Did the design and analytic methods used in Project MATCH permit a fair test of the hypothesis? Does the dearth of compelling matching findings imply that matching is no longer a relevant topic for treatment research?

Assessing Acohol Problems A Guide For Clinicians and Researchers
This volume is a valuable resource for clinicians and researchers concerned with assessing patients’ alcohol problems using psychometric instruments. Subject matter experts review domains of assessment-different stages of treatment such as screening, diagnosis, planning, treatment, and outcome-that require different types of instruments, and they describe issues relevant to each area. An update of the 1996 Assessing Alcohol Problems: A Guide for Clinicians and Researchers, this second edition presents in one convenient location, samples of more than 70 assessment instruments, along with fact sheets, an at-a-glance “Quick Reference Instrument Guide,” and tables within each chapter comparing instruments used in each domain of treatment. Assessing Alcohol Problems is loose-leaf bound to make page replacement and updating easier.
Medication for the Treatment of Alcohol Use Disorder: A Brief Guide: This manual provides guidance on the use of medication-assisted treatment for alcohol use misuse. It summarizes approved medications, screening and assessment, treatment planning and patient monitoring.
