Abstract

Although self-sufficiency program participants' alcohol problem is widely recognized among social workers in the field, it has not been received much attention. The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between alcohol problem and self sufficiency among the participants. A total of 281 participants were participated in this study. Significant relationships between alcohol problem and self sufficiency were not found in bivariate analysis. However, the moderating effect of alcohol problem on the relationship between the length of participation and willingness for self sufficiency was statistically significant. Among the participants with alcohol problem, the length of participation was positively related to willingness for self sufficiency. The result on the moderating effect of alcohol problem on the relationship between the length of participation and willingness for self sufficiency has been never mentioned in previous studies.
