No matter what substances individuals abuse, 75% of them are likely to relapse following treatment, most often within three months of the end of treatment. Moreover, up to 50% of patients will drop out of various forms of treatment.

There are substantial differences among therapists in achieving positive treatment outcomes. Some therapists are up to 50% more effective and have a 50% lower dropout rate. This presentation will discuss what these so-called “Expert” therapists do. How to implement a variety of Core Tasks of Psychotherapy and ways to conduct integrative interventions for PTSD, depression, suicidality and substance abuse in a gender and culturally-sensitive manner will be discussed. Ways to integrate spiritually-oriented Twelve Step AA programs and psychotherapy will be presented.
