Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA) for adults with cognitive impairment who abuse or are addicted to drugs

Among people with abuse and addiction, mental illness is common and cognitive impairment can be caused by acquired mental illnesses as well as behavioral and personality disorders. The Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA) is a method against abuse or addiction to alcohol or drugs that was developed in the United States in the 1960s and is based on learning psychology and cognitive behavioral therapy.
