    • Abstract:
      Highlights •Patients can change their social networks to be more supportive of abstinence.•Social networks that are more supportive of abstinence yielded reduced drinking.•Network Support treatment was effective for most patients.•Network Support treatment effects were mediated by self-efficacy and network variables.
    • Abstract:
      Purpose The current trial of Network Support treatment, building on our previous work, was intended to further enhance the ability of patients to construct abstinence-supportive social networks, and to test this approach against a strong control treatment.
    • Abstract:
      Methods Patients were 193 men and women with alcohol use disorder recruited from the community and assigned to either 12 weeks of Network Support (NS) or Packaged Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment (PCBT), and followed for 27 months.
    • Abstract:
      Results Results of multilevel analyses indicated that NS yielded better posttreatment results in terms of both proportion of days abstinent and drinking consequences, and equivalent improvements in 90-day abstinence, heavy drinking days and drinks per drinking day. Mediation analyses revealed that NS treatment effects were mediated by pre-post changes in abstinence self-efficacy and in social network variables, especially proportion of non-drinkers in the social network and attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous.
    • Abstract:
      Conclusion It was concluded that helping patients enhance their abstinent social network can be effective, and may provide a useful alternative or adjunctive approach to treatment.
