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.
SBU Enquiry Service
Consists of structured literature searches to highlight studies that can address questions received by the SBU Enquiry Service from Swedish healthcare or social service providers. We assess the risk of bias in systematic reviews and when needed also quality and transferability of results in health economic studies. Relevant references are compiled by an SBU staff member, in consultation with an external expert when needed.
