"Family and community are powerful tools and can motivate change. An evidence-based program called CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) encourages relationships and teaches families skills to connect with their loved ones by effectively communicating and reinforcing positive behaviors, even in the context of unhealthy behaviors….Loved ones are not powerless. While we can't make a person change, we can contribute to making them want to change."
Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment (personal narrative by Barbara Straus Lodge)
Packed with practical tools, this authoritative manual offers a complete guide to implementing the evidence-based Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) program. Jane Ellen Smith and Robert J. Meyers have spent decades developing and refining their approach for helping concerned significant others (CSOs) of treatment-refusing individuals with substance use problems. Structured yet flexible, CRAFT teaches loved ones to change their behavior with the identified patient to encourage treatment entry and enhance their own well-being. The volume features step-by-step implementation guidelines, case examples, sample dialogues, troubleshooting tips, and 24 reproducible forms, handouts, and checklists that can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8½“ x 11” size.
