Designed to educate clients on effective lifestyle management, this program focuses on client education and teaching clients how to manage craving and reduce the risk of relapse. The client learns about the nature of their problem, underlying causes, and effective cognitive coping strategies by which to take control of their lives and initiate positive change. This Therapist Guide reviews practical issues in the assessment and treatment of all types of substance abuse disorders. The information and recovery strategies can be used with clients who abuse or are dependent on alcohol, sedatives, tobacco, cocaine, methamphetamiens and other stimulants, heroin and other opioids, cannabis, hallucinogens, and inhalants. The guide provides clinicians with strategies for working with substance abuse disorders by focusing on specific issues involved in both stopping substance abuse and changing behaviors or lifestyle aspects that contribute to continued substance abuse. The information presented in this guide is derived from several sources: empirical, clinical, and self-help literature, as well as the authors' many years of experience developing treatment programs and providing direct treatment services.
