How to Help Family Members Affected by a Loved One’s Substance Use
For every one person living with a Substance Use Disorder, there are an average of five loved ones around him/her who are also negatively affected. CRAFT is a unique therapeutic approach with strong research support in helping people to take good care of themselves while also doing what’s in their control to impact the substance use of a loved one. This course discusses the main principles of CRAFT and some accessible resources for clinicians and patients alike.
