The Rutgers Women’s Treatment Project was a five year clinical research study funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) to test the effectiveness of therapies for women with drinking problems. The Women’s Treatment Project offered: confidential outpatient assessment; treatment of alcohol problems based on research-proven techniques; therapists who specialize in treatment alcohol problems; two pre-treatment evaluation sessions; 12 weekly individual or small group therapy (all women) sessions; payment for participation in the research aspects of the program; and 3 research follow-up contacts after treatment is over.
