What Do Internet-Based Alcohol Treatment Websites Offer?
Alcoholism, Computer-Assisted Instruction, Health Education, Internet, Information Services

The Internet was searched for websites that advertised or provided treatment or help for alcohol problems. Websites were evaluated for the types of treatment offered and whether the treatment had an empirical basis. While a wide range of treatments were advertised, very few websites offered online services. In addition, very few sites provided or advertised alcohol treatment programs that were empirically based. Recommendations for future Internet-based health care and treatment are offered.
