About This Program
Target Population: Adults age 18 or older with a diagnosis of cocaine abuse or dependence
CRA + Vouchers has two main components. The Community Reinforcement Approach (CRA) component is an intensive psychosocial therapy emphasizing changes in substance use; vocation; social and recreational practices; and coping skills. The Voucher Approach is a contingency- management intervention where clients earn material incentives for remaining in treatment and sustaining cocaine abstinence verified by urine toxicology testing.
