Module Description:
This module provides an overview of four principles that may play an important role in facilitating behavior change among substance dependent individuals.  The combination of psychosocial and medication assisted treatment protocols can provide an additive benefit to individuals striving to alter their substance use. Empirically supported treatments vary in their theoretical orientation and the emphasis they place on specific dimensions of change.  Developing a psychosocial treatment plan that addresses these four domains (i.e. coping skills, competing reinforcers, how individuals talk about their change plan, and utilizing social supports)  can enhance the overall effectiveness of a medication assisted protocol.  This module also outlines the Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) approach to treatment, a particularly effective framework for engaging family members in the treatment process.
