This book describes a multi-faceted program, developed by Dr. Meyers, that uses supportive, non-confrontational methods to engage substance abusers into treatment.
Called Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT), the program uses scientifically validated behavioral principles to reduce the loved one’s substance use and to encourage him or her to seek treatment. Equally important, CRAFT also helps loved ones reduce personal stress and introduce meaningful, new sources of satisfaction into their life.

- This breakthrough new system is sweeping the recovery field. This book is its first introduction to the general public.
- Contains simple exercises readers can practice at their own pace, with no costly or heart-breaking interventions.
- Proven successful for numerous addictions, not just alcoholism.
