Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA) is a comprehensive behavioral program for treating substance-abuse problems with a robust evidence base. It is grounded on the belief that environmental contingencies can play a powerful role in encouraging or discouraging drinking or drug use. Consequently, it utilizes social, recreational, familial, and vocational reinforcers to assist consumers in the recovery process. Its goal is to make a sober lifestyle more rewarding than the use of substances. (12 CEUs)
