The 12-session program is comprised of interventions to help client's stop or reduce substabce use and prevent relapse. The client becomes aware of his or her drinking/use patterns and triggers through self-recording. Each session involves skill training and anticipating high-risk situations. The client learns how to manage triggers, deal with urges to drink, rearrange behavioral consequences, challenge alcohol-related thoughts and refuse drinks. Additional treatment components include managing anxiety and depression, building social support, assertiveness training, anger management, and problem solving.
