CBT has been shown to be effective in the treatment of substance abuse disorders. This workshop will review the evidence regarding the efficacy of CBT with substance use disorders. CBT offers an effective structure through which clinicians can conceptualize presenting problems and select interventions. Research indicates that the cognitive and behavioral interventions that are associated with CBT have a positive impact on reducing the risk of relapse. Specific interventions of CBT will be discussed and applied to cases.
