The aim of the study is to assess the efficacy of the My Choices - Alcohol program by comparing alcohol-use of people before and after doing the program to people that did not do the program on the same period of time (3 months).


People with an alcohol addiction problem consume an average of 26.3 (sd = 12.4) drinks per week (Cournoyer et al., 2010). To observe a decrease of 25% in this average number of drinks for the group participating in the program " My Choices " immediately compared to the delayed group at 3 months, we need a sample size of 100 participants. This calculation assumes an alpha of 5%, a power of 80% and unbalanced groups due to the randomization method used. Considering an attrition rate of 11.3% at 3 months and 20% at 6 months (Tremblay et al., Submitted), it will be necessary to recruit at least 120 participants to maintain the required number for analyses.
