Access to treatment for substance abuse disorders is limited, and practical strategies are needed to expand opportunities for individuals to receive evidence-based interventions. Automated or semi-automated treatments have shown promise in other disorders. Identifying the characteristics of patients who will be able to benefit from this unconventional approach will increase the likelihood of success. The current study examined 1,297 individuals using an on-line alcohol evaluation program. Subjects had high scores on the AUDIT, and a substantial amount of ambivalence about the possible harm that their drinking caused, but very low levels of identifying themselves as actual problem drinkers.
