A Different Path to Fighting Addiction

CRAFT is in the news! It’s so cool to see that CRAFT and other evidence based addiction treatments are getting more press and that there are more places where families can access these types of treatment. Although the article only discusses one addiction treatment center that provides evidence based treatments for addiction, the Center for Motivation and Change, I strongly believe that as people learn more about effective addiction treatments that the demand for them will grow.

Your voice is important in changing the landscape of addictions treatment. Your requests for evidence based addictions treatment to treatment centers, hospitals, providers, and insurers can further educate institutions and providers about effective alternatives to 12 steps and to encourage them to start including evidence based treatments in their programs. Working together we can make evidence based treatments for addiction the norm, rather than the exception.
