Overview

This book provides a framework for helping individuals with addictive behavior problems develop the skills to remain abstinent once they have kicked the habit, whatever the habit in question may be. The all-or-nothing dichotomy of traditional treatment strategies—e.g., "You're only one drink away from a drunk"—is rejected in favor of a more pragmatic, optimistic approach that regards one slip back to earlier behaviors as a lapse rather than a total relapse. The focus is on the development of new adaptive behaviors, cognitions, and general problem-solving skills to enhance the individual's sense of self-control and ability to cope with high-risk situations. Methods demonstrated include cognitive assessment and intervention, imagery, relapse rehearsal, relaxation training, stress management, and lifestyle modification. Grounded in research and illustrated with numerous clinical vignettes, the book provides innovative strategies for helping clients make and maintain positive changes in their lives.
