Estimates suggest that nearly 1 in 20 adult women in the U.S. is married to or living with a partner with an alcohol use disorder (AUD). In this project, we are developing and testing a Web-based version of StopSpinningMyWheels (SSMW), an empirically tested coping skills training program. The project includes an RCT with 450 women with an AUD partner to test the therapeutic benefit of being randomly assigned to one of three conditions: Web SSMW plus coach support calls, Web SSMW without coach support, or a usual Web comparison condition that presents a compilation of free Web information.
