Description: The Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment Program for overcoming Alcohol Problems manual was designed and tested for clients with a goal of abstinence from alcohol.

This manual includes 12 therapy sessions to be delivered in individual therapy modality and covers (1) core cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) elements for alcohol use disorders (AUDs), including self-recording, functional analysis, dealing with heavy drinkers in the social network, self-management planning, coping with craving and alcohol-related thoughts, drink refusal, making sober social connections, and relapse prevention; (2) management of negative effects (e.g., anxiety, depression, and anger); and (3) general coping skills including assertiveness training and problem solving.

Although the workbook is written for the client, a mental health professional should supervise the treatment because many of the concepts and procedures are relatively complex.

This is part of the “Treatments that Work” series that contain manuals and workbooks with step-by-step, detailed procedures for assessing and treating specific problems and diagnoses.
