Excerpt

Generally, the most widely used treatment for A/DD employs the 12-step approach, which considers addiction to be an-independent disorder. This approach includes principles of recovery derived from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), cognitive-behavioral therapies, group and individual modalities, and long-term management of the addictive disorders in AA or Narcotics Anonymous (NA; Table 30–5). The results of treatment outcome studies indicate that the 12-step method is an effective form of treatment for A/DD (Harrison et al. 1991). Overall abstinence rates for 1 year were 68% in 1,663 outpatients and 60% in 8,087 inpatients in a study derived from 35 different treatment sites (Hoffman and Miller 1992). The abstinence rates increased to 82% and 75%, respectively, with regular attendance at AA. Effective treatment strategies for chemical dependency in TBI populations should focus on behavioral, cognitive, and gestalt issues. The supportive network of AA and NA offer therapy on all of these levels (Kramer and Hoisington 1992).
