Online and In-Print Resources
At CMC, we recognize that the treatment resources across this country are often limited and all too often not high quality or evidence based. Until the treatment landscape changes (which thankfully it is starting to do), we want as many people as possible to have access to evidence-based resources, regardless of their ability to pay, or where they live. As such, CMC has embraced the internet as one way we can help people gain access to high quality resources. We are always looking to expand our digital resources, and encourage you to stay connected with us by facebook or by signing up for our newsletter. We are constantly updating and posting (sharing) great resources as we come across them. We hope you find them helpful.
Beyond Addiction Workbook for Family & Friends
The Beyond Addiction Workbook for Family and Friends: Evidence-Based Skills to Help a Loved One Make Positive Change, is our first full-length publication on the Invitation to Change Approach (ITC). From Dr. Carrie Wilkens, Dr. Jeff Foote, and Dr. Ken Carpenter (authors of Beyond Addiction), this book provides a thorough, compassionate guide through the Invitation to Change Approach, a helping model based in science and compassion that is built to teach both family members and professionals the most effective strategies for supporting someone who is struggling with substance use and change.
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.
