Relapse prevention applies cognitive-behavioural strategies and lifestyle procedures to treat people with addiction problems. Other available literature on relapse prevention tends to be theoretical in nature; this book fulfils the need for a practical manual showing how therapists should carry out this form of treatment. It is based on the actual experience of the authors in using relapse prevention methods and provides working details on the different topics to be covered in each group or individual session. 'Homework' assignments are also provided and a chapter is devoted to 'trouble shooting' - how to deal with the potential problems encountered in this type of therapy.
