RECRUITING NOW: People who have overcome alcohol problems by themselves (18+ years)

This project aims to understand the ways in which people manage their alcohol problems without going to treatment. The stories of people who overcome their alcohol habit by themselves, are often not talked about amongst researchers and treatment providers. By talking to people who have overcome their alcohol dependency, addiction, or habit by themselves, we hope to develop new understandings of how to treat people with alcohol problems.

We want to talk to people aged 18 and over, who have overcome an alcohol dependency, addiction, or habit by themselves.

How to get involved:

Uniquely styled interviews are currently being run. These interviews involve you and the researcher developing an auto-biographical account of your life, with you drawing out the ups and downs of your life, and detailed pictures representing important moments in your life.
