I liked this site very much. I read what Dr. Westermeyer had to say about
codependency. It was so good I down loaded it so I can reread it. Caring for
and about someone is not being codependent! I spent an afternoon lookin into
some of the information. Educationally significant site for teachers and

Technical Remarks:

Roaming around this site was not difficult. You find many topics to read over.
There's something for everyone.

I spent appoximately 2-3 hours surfing different areas of this site. Specificly
I enjoyed the cognitive-therapy around anger management. There was alot of
information I felt was pertinent for both myself, and the youth I work with.
Another area I thought was intersesting was the Coping with urges page. I would
have liked to see some additional links relating to the information on this
site. Over-all I enjoyed my time spent viewing this site.

Technical Remarks:

This was very easy to navigate. The first time on, I didn't have any trouble
getting around. I do believe this site can be a useful tool for both a
student/teacher. Again, I would have liked to see more related links to the
areas targeted on this site.

I enjoyed this iste. It has a great alcohol depedancy test, and great links to
other sites such as for cognitive therapy and smoking addictions. I spent a good
amount of time and will likely spend more. I didn't give five stars because the
sub-category despriptions, I felt needed more info.

Technical Remarks:

Very easy to navigate, the links clicks to other sites are instant, and the site
itself is easy on the eyes.

I spent approximately 35 minutes to browse this site. I find this site is
useful. These are some questions about alcohol check-ups to help determine the
drinking situations and also gives you suggestions for intervention.
It is very useful for people who can not change their drinking behavior.

Technical Remarks:

I think this website is little bit complicated for the first time users,
although I think if you this website a lot, it will be very useful and easy to
gather information.

I spent about 45 minutes reading through this material and taking the tests. I
took the alcohol self- check up for someone I know and my assumptions were
correct. The information was very straight forward and clear. It gave
information for everyone, alcoholic, parents, and children. I think it could
easily be used as a teaching tool. It names many reasons for not drinking that
many teens should be aware of. I think it would be helpfull not only in a
classroom but maybe at an AA meeting.

Technical Remarks:

I think this site was easy to use and very informative!
