Alcohol use behavior is broadly associated with romantic relationship functioning. Problems with alcohol use may strain romantic relationships and relationship conflict may trigger alcohol use. On the other hand, supportive partners and well-functioning relationships are associated with improved treatment outcomes for alcohol use disorder (AUD). Alcohol Behavioral Couple Therapy (ABCT) is designed to treat individual alcohol use problems by addressing the interpersonal patterns that maintain drinking while enhancing relationship functioning. This webinar will explore the role of romantic partners in alcohol use treatment and provide an overview of ABCT techniques.
