Abstract

This article describes pilot test findings of an Internet-based, Transtheoretical Model-based, computer-tailored intervention for adults who exceed national guidelines for low-risk drinking. In a pilot test, 166 adults recruited from worksites completed one session and evaluated the program. Pre- and post-assessments indicate intention to make behavioral changes. Importantly, 94.3% of participants indicated that they would recommend the program. Ratings were positive with the majority of participants agreeing or strongly agreeing with all 14 evaluation items. Feasibility was demonstrated by recruiting and engaging employed adults. This program is a cost-effective prevention program promoting responsible drinking to adults. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
