Military Family Input Requested for Alcohol Use Survey


alcohol survey military family input requestedDo you and your spouse disagree about alcohol use? If so, please consider taking a survey about alcohol use designed for married couples!

Problematic alcohol use is a concern for many families, but often goes untreated. For example, a study of over 56,000 returning servicemen and women found that while over 11% (6,669) of the group endorsed problematic alcohol use, less than 0.5% (134) of those  at-risk service members were even referred for treatment, and fewer than that actually sought and received treatment.

Considering that alcohol use issues are a risk factor for suicide, domestic violence, and child health problems, this gap between those in need of services and the resources available to them is in dire need of attention. As a researcher it is my goal to better understand the ways in which family plays a role in encouraging people with alcohol use issues to seek help, so that we can better identify, engage, and assist people with alcohol use concerns.

To participate in my research project, please review the following information and click on the link below:

Are you and your spouse legally married?  Have either you or your spouse consumed alcoholic beverages recently?

Is alcohol use an area of concern in your marriage? (i.e. has one of you been feeling concerned about the other’s drinking?)

If you answered yes to these questions, you and your spouse are eligible to participate in a research survey regarding the relationship between marriage, alcohol use, and alcohol-related help seeking behaviors.

The survey has a section for both partners, and will take each participant approximately 20 minutes. Survey responses will be anonymous. An opportunity to enter a raffle will be made available to those participants that complete the entire survey. Contact information provided to enter the raffle cannot be connected to your survey responses.
