Dr. Meyers co-authored the book, Get Your Loved One Sober: Alternatives to Nagging, Pleading, and Threatening. At this event he will walk you through his award-winning, scientifically proven CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) approach to helping a loved one get sober. The scientifically based CRAFT approach helps you engage treatment-refusing substance users in a positive, compassionate way. This approach has been proven to improve the lives of Concerned Significant Others (CSOs), reduce the problematic addition behavior of your loved one, and increase loved one’s motivation to enter treatment. Research has shown that almost 7 out of 10 people who use the CRAFT method get their loved one to attend treatment.
