Describes the development, implementation, and evaluation of a theory based coping skills program for people with alcoholism. Based on Shiffman and Wills' (1985) Stress Program Process model, it helped clients effectively respond to conditions that contributed to negative affect and create life- enhancing experiences. Evaluation involved social validation, behavioral measures, and therapist feedback. Overall, goals and interventions were important to recovery, and most clients accomplished program goals. (SM)
