Abstract
THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF PROJECT TRANSITION IS TO BRING ABOUT INCREASED EARLY INTERVENTION IN AND PREVENTION OF ABUSIVE ALCOHOL USE PATTERNS AMONG DIVORCED AND SEPARATED WOMEN WHO ARE KNOWN TO BE AT RISK OF SUBSTANCE ABUSE BY DEVELOPING LOW-COST, NONSTIGMATIZED EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THAT CAN BE DISTRIBUTED BY THE NATURAL NETWORK OF SERVICE PROVIDERS WHO REGULARLY COME INTO CONTACT WITH THIS POPULATION. IN PHASE I, CLIENTS OF 1,272 PROGRAMS PROVIDING SERVICES TO DISPLACED HOMEMAKERS WILL BE SURVEYED FOR INFORMATION REGARDING ALCOHOL-RELATED CONCERNS OF THE DIVORCED AND SEPARATED WOMEN THEY SERVE. EXISTING EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS WILL BE REVIEWED FOR EFFECTIVENESS. ONE PRINT AND ONE NONPRINT PRODUCT WILL BE TARGETED FOR PRODUCTION AND FIELD TESTING IN PHASE II.
