Male alcohol dependent clients (N = 53), who were given the Alcohol Expectancy Questionnaire and the Negative Alcohol Expectancy Questionnaire upon admission to a residential alcohol treatment program, were successfully followed-up 1 month and 3 months after discharge to assess their compliance with the treatment goal of total abstinence. At 1 month, neither demographic variables nor alcohol expectancies were associated with outcome consumption. At 3 months, however, the demographic variable, age, total negative expectancy (but not total positive) and the two subscales, global positive expectancy and continued-drinking negative expectancy (representing longer term expected negative consequences), were. The potential importance of negative alcohol expectancy in drinking decisions and the limitations of the study were identified.
