An innovative new approach to addiction treatment that pairs cognitive behavioural therapy with cognitive neuroscience, to directly target the core mechanisms of addiction.

•Offers a focus on addiction that is lacking in existing cognitive therapy accounts
•Utilizes various approaches, including mindfulness, 12-step facilitation, cognitive bias modification, motivational enhancement and goal-setting and, to combat common road blocks on the road to addiction recovery
•Uses neuroscientific findings to explain how willpower becomes compromised-and how it can be effectively utilized in the clinical arena.
