    Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training (CRAFT)

    Have you been frustrated, angry, exhaustsed and out of answers for how to address your loved one’s struggles with addiction? Stop the begging and pleading! Coping and living with a loved one in addiction is challenging and can be life draining. The good news is that Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training (CRAFT) can help you develop effective and lasting solutions to these problems.

    CRAFT is based on sound psychological principles and has been scientifically tested in multiple studies. CRAFT teaches family and friends effective strategies to respond to a loved one who is struggling with substance use problems. CRAFT is an alternative treatment to the traditional Al-anon and Johnson Intervention models.

    Primary aims of CRAFT

    • CRAFT helps reduce the loved one’s alcohol and drug use, whether or not the loved one has engaged in treatment.
    • CRAFT improves the lives of concerned family and friends.
