Question by Henry S: How come questions about sobriety only get 12-step answers, never SMART Recovery or CRAFT?
CRAFT (Community Reinforcement Approach Family Training) as described in Meyers and Wolfe’s book One Sober: Alternatives to nagging, pleading and threatening – from Hazelden Press! – describes a non-confrontational approach to helping others get sober that works. In research it did 6 X better than Alannon (which doesn’t actually aim to help but rather helps people let go) and 2X better than the Johnson Institute “intervention” (which makes people angry and feel they’ve been attacked). Also, SMART (Self-Management And Recovery Training) at www.smartrecovery.org offers a similar science-based and secular approach that is much more appealing to folks who don’t beleive in a Higher Power who will fix it if properly prayed to and appeased, and SMART Recovery is based on approachs proven to work. So why are all the answers to such questions always AA, 12-step, anonymous group oriented?

Best answer:

Answer by A MOMMA
