Beyond Addiction

Beyond Addiction: How Science and Kindness Help People Change is CMC’s first book! Beyond Addiction is CMC’s way of giving families, friends, and loved ones hope that they can help someone they care about change their substance use. Using the most current science and over 40 years of knowledge about substance use treatment, Drs Foote, Wilkens and Kosanke outline how you can help your loved one make changes.


The 20 Minute Guide

We created this workbook and free online resource for parents, partners, friends, and family members who want to help a loved one change their relationship with substances.

Based on the Invitation to Change®, the 20-Minute Guide contains practical ideas and exercises to help you help your loved one through the process of change.

CMC's Non-Profit

The founders of CMC recently launched the 501(c)(3) non-profit CMC:Foundation for Change (CMC:FFC) to provide evidence-based resources to family members. In many communities across the country, access to evidence-based treatment options is severely limited—sometimes non-existent. Finances can also be a significant factor when it comes to seeking help. The CMC:FFC website will provide a trove of helpful videos and online content that can be accessed anywhere for free.

What is CRAFT?

Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) teaches family and friends effective strategies for helping their loved one to change and for feeling better themselves. CRAFT works to affect the loved one’s behavior by changing the way the family interacts with him or her.


Our monthly newsletter is loaded with helpful information about how to achieve and maintain your goals (and those of your loved one), wellness tips (recipes, exercise, self-care), current research in the field, CRAFT pointers, ways to keep up your motivation, and more (we throw in some fun stuff as well!).

Sign up for this monthly dose of support and inspiration.
