  • emphasises group process and interaction (discussion, role plays)
  • uses a bio-psychosocial approach to strengthening neglected areas of an addict's life
  • allows clients to enter the program at any point in the cycle of sessions
  • features session-specific guidance and strategies for clinicians
  • teaches clients to use relaxation and visualization techniques
  • associated with a successful outcome study
