Abstract

Purpose:

The aim of the study was to assess the effect of the cognitive behavior model (CBM)-based psychoeducation and exercise intervention on quality of life (QoL) in alcohol use disorder (AUD).

Design:

This study was a non-randomized controlled trial.

Methods:

CBM-based psychoeducation and exercise intervention was applied to the experimental group four times a week for 6 weeks; no intervention was applied to the control group.

Findings:

No difference was seen between the points of pretest QoL of the experimental and control groups (p > 0.05). However, according to the posttest, the experimental group's mean score of QoL was higher than the control groups (p < 0.05).

Conclusion:

It was found that CBM-based psychoeducation and exercise intervention applied to individuals with AUD affected the QoL positively.

Clinical relevance:

CBM-based psychoeducation and exercise intervention can be used by nurses to improve AUD individuals' quality of life.
