Abstract

This outcomes assessment was implemented to evaluate a web-based alcohol use recovery program, Tempest Sobriety School (TSS), and to provide a model for outcome evaluation. Adults (N= 541) enrolled in TSS were assessed at pre-program start and Month 2, 6, and 12. Participants reported decreased alcohol use, drug use, craving for alcohol, and alcohol use disorder symptoms over the course of the program; changes were maintained at Month 6 and 12. Participants reported sustained increases in overall physical and mental health and quality of life. Findings will inform TSS students and stakeholders and provide a model for others conducting similar evaluations.
