Outpatient CBT for Alcohol and Other Substance Use

Disorders:  Challenges in the Real World

with Barbara McCrady, Ph.D.


Presenter:  Barbara S. McCrady, Ph.D. is a Distinguished Professor of Psychology and the Director of The Center on Alcoholism, Substance Abuse, and Addictions (CASAA) at the University of New Mexico.


Audience Level:  Basic (casual familiarity with topic area e.g., treated one case)


At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:


  1. Describe the CBT model for conceptualizing drinking and drug use.
  2. Describe the use of functional analysis for case conceptualization and treatment planning.
  3. Describe intervention strategies for at least two clinical challenges that AUD/SUD clients present.



Alcohol and other substance use disorders (AUDs and other SUDs) are among the most prevalent problems seen in outpatient medical and mental health practices.  Cognitive behavior therapy is one efficacious approach to treating these client problems.  The CBT model includes motivational enhancement techniques, the use of functional analysis to organize coping skills oriented treatment, and additional relapse prevention techniques to maintain change.  The implementation of the treatment with voluntary, relatively high functioning clients can be straightforward, but clinical challenges are the rule rather than the exception.  Clinical issues include dealing with client ambivalence about change; developing a positive therapeutic alliance with certain clients; selection of drinking goals; difficulty with attaining abstinence or specific moderate drinking goals; and managing other social and psychological problems.  Clients who are mandated to treatment and those with low educational attainment present additional challenges, as does the integration of CBT with other client experiences such as AA or NA involvement.  In this webinar, Dr. McCrady will overview the CBT model, and then present clinical strategies for managing specific client challenges.  A case example will be used to illustrate the approach.
