Group Treatment for Substance Abuse: A Stages-of-Change Therapy Manual

This practical manual presents a 29-session treatment program designed to engage, motivate, and stimulate processes of change in clients at all stages of recovery. The program is based upon the research-supported Transtheoretical Model of Change (TTM), also known as the "stages of change."

The manual employs skills-building activities and interventions that are likely to be most effective with clients as they cycle from the earlier stages of change (pre-contemplation, contemplation, and preparation) to the later stages (action and maintenance).

Each of the structured sessions is presented in a consistent, highly accessible format, including a clear rationale, summary of objectives, and overview of the main activities that will take place. Step-by-step guidelines for implementation are provided, as well as strategies for using a motivational interviewing style. The manual includes handouts and exercise forms that are ready to photocopy and distribute to clients. Ideal for use with groups, the approach can easily be adapted to individual treatment (Source: www.guilford.com).
