  • Behavioral Therapy Across the Spectrum

    Posted on April 11th, 2011 TimB No comments

    Numerous effective behavioral therapies have been developed that can bring the treatment to the patient rather than bringing the patient to treatment. These behavioral therapy techniques, which can provide effective treatment across the spectrum of severity of alcohol abuse disorders, include facilitated self­change, individual therapies, couples and family approaches, and contingency management.

    New methods of delivery and successful adjuncts to existing behavioral treatments also  have been introduced, including computerized cognitive–behavioral treatments, Web­based guidedself­change, and mindfulness­based approaches. Although a wide variety of behavioral approacheshave been shown to have good efficacy, choosing the treatment most appropriate for a given patient remains a challenge.
