2/18/11 Self-Control Strategies Self-control training helps abusers develop skills they can use to change their abusive behavior. Behavior therapists focus on three components—the “ABCs”— of substance abuse: 1. The antecedent cues or stimuli (As) that prompt or trigger abuse. 2. The abusive behaviors (Bs) themselves. 3. The reinforcing or punishing consequences (Cs) that maintain or discourage abuse.

2/18/11 The Conditioning Model of Cravings Classical conditioning may help explain drug cravings. In this view, cravings reflect the body’s need to restore high blood levels of the addictive substance and thus have a biological basis. But they also come to be associated with environmental cues associated with prior use of the substance.

2/18/11 Detoxification Detoxification  - The process of ridding the system of alcohol  or other drugs under supervised conditions. Detoxification is often more safely carried out in a hospital  setting.  In the case of addiction to alcohol or barbiturates,  hospitalization allows medical personnel to monitor and treat  potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms such as  convulsions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
