Description: This course is a core curriculum course for individuals wishing to complete addictions certification education requirements. The content in the course includes the National Institute on Drug Abuse Principles of Drug Addiction Treatment: A research-based guide and three therapy manuals entitled: A Cognitive-Behavioral Approach: Treating Cocaine Addiction; A Community Reinforcement Plus Vouchers Approach: Treating Cocaine Addiction and An Individual Drug Counseling Approach to Treat Cocaine Addiction: The Collaborative Cocaine Treatment Study Model. All the models focus on treatment of cocaine addiction; however, we believe the information is generalizable to all substance dependency disorders. The first model describes a cognitive-behavioral approach. The second integrates a voucher incentives feature, which may help involve reluctant, more chronic users to remain in treatment long enough to start an abstinence-based lifestyle. The third represents an individual counseling approach with a behavioral focus that is a more traditional addictions intervention with a 12-step emphasis. This course is part of a multi-part series on counseling models for addictions treatment.
Public Domain Notice: The study guides contain the Therapy Manuals entitled A Cognitive-Behavioral Approach: Treating Cocaine Addiction; A Community Reinforcement Plus Vouchers Approach: Treating Cocaine Addiction and An Individual Drug Counseling Approach to Treat Cocaine Addiction: The Collaborative Cocaine Treatment Study Model.

The cost for this home study does not include any charges for these materials but rather are fees for the credits you earn by passing the posttest and course evaluation. While this therapy manual is written specifically geared toward the treatment of cocaine dependency it is mentioned throughout these manuals that the concepts and methods described can be easily adapted to any substance dependency problem. While the models presented in this series represent those, which have shown efficacy and are evidence-based approaches for use in the treatment of addiction, Program Services does not endorse these models over others that may not be included in this series.
