New Studies show acceptance
of Moderation Options by Therapists
Two new studies, just released, show the therapeutic community has a high degree of acceptance for moderation therapies.
They are available as abstracts for free; full text PDF's are available for a fee. National Institute of Health:
And the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment:
The full text of these articles are available as either a subscription or a paid fee- $11.95 and $31.50. But the abstracts effectively summarize the results- Moderation therapies appear to be becoming a mainstream option for traditional addiction treatment practitioners.
