Clinical Guide to Alcohol Treatment:
The Community Reinforcement Approach
(Guilford Substance Abuse)

Robert J. Meyers, Jane Ellen Smith

Synopsis

A hands-on guide for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and substance abuse counselors. The community reinforcement approach acknowledges the powerful role of environmental contingencies in encouraging or discouraging drinking, and attempts to rearrange those contingencies so a non-drinking lifestyle is more rewarding than a drinking one. The empirically based approach employs social, recreational, familial, and vocational strategies to help clients in the process of recovery. Topics include: behavioral skills training, marital therapy, job counseling, and relapse prevention.
