Cognitive Behavioral Interventions for Substance Abuse
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) was developed as an intervention to prevent relapse when treating substance abuse. CBT strategies are founded on the theory that in the development of maladaptive behavioral patterns, learning processes play a critical role. Individuals in CBT learn to identify and correct problematic behaviors by applying a range of different skills that can be used to stop drug abuse and to address a range of other issues that often co-occur with it. A critical element of CBT is anticipating likely problems and enhancing client’s self-control by helping them develop effective coping strategies. Specific techniques include: exploring the positive and negative consequences of continued drug use, self-monitoring to recognize cravings early and identify situations that might put one at risk for use, and developing strategies for coping with cravings and avoiding those high-risk situations. Research indicates that the skills individuals learn through cognitive-behavioral approaches remain after the completion of treatment.
Parenting for Recovering Families
Adults in recovery face many day-to-day challenges, and for those who are parents, maintaining good relationships with children can be both rewarding and daunting at the same time. Addressing parenting issues during various stages of recovery can lead to enhanced quality of the parent-child relationship, especially during adolescence. Research has shown that effective parenting is one of the most critical influences on healthy adolescent development – and for parents in recovery, the hardest part of recovery may be facing up the impact their addiction has had on children. Parenting issues that are addressed are meant to provide information and tools so that relationships with children can be established or strengthened.

Minority stress is a very real issue that significantly impacts members of minority groups on a daily basis. Interpersonal prejudice and discrimination based on race, culture, or identity are some of the main causes of minority stress. Poor social support systems, low socioeconomic status, and our political atmosphere cause minority individuals to experience high levels of stress.
Examples of minority groups who may be likely to experience minority stress include:
- Racial Minorities
