Over the past two decades, the addiction field has become increasingly evidence-based in its approach to treating problems on the addiction spectrum. From guided self-change to medical detoxification and medication-assisted treatment, evidence for “what works for whom in which circumstances” has not only accumulated but also coalesced and differentiated along the addiction spectrum, including substance-related and addictive disorders. This session reviews current evidence-based treatment for substance and behavioral addiction difficulties to help psychologists, other licensed mental health professionals, medical professionals, and ministry leaders implement best practices when working with those seeking help with addiction-related challenges.

Learning Objectives

1. Evaluate the status of evidence-based treatment of addiction-related difficulties
2. Analyze key components of evidence-based treatment of conditions throughout the addiction spectrum that apply to substance and behavioral addiction-related difficulties
3. Apply principles of conceptualization, diagnosis, and treatment planning consistent with evidence-based treatment and best practices
