Addressing Crime as a Substance Use Relapse Factor: a Humanistic, Motive-Focused Approach
The book explores crime as a substance use relapse factor and offers a humanistic rehabilitation-compatible model of criminality. The book also offers an in-depth discussion of the interplay between four types of criminal motivations (profit, socialization, stimulation, ego) and substance use and introduces a detailed 8 session group treatment protocol, "Crime and Recovery," designed specifically for a correctional substance use client. The "Crime and Recovery" group protocol allows clients to examine psychological motives behind their criminal behavior with the hope of identifying psychologically, physically, financially, ethically and legally safer alternative means to the satisfaction of their personal goals. As such, "Crime and Recovery" group serves the rehabilitation goal of crime-related substance use relapse prevention. The proposed group treatment protocol can be easily generalized to individual treatment format.
