CRAFT 
Community Reinforcement
and Family Training

SRC’s CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) support program is for family members and friends concerned about someone close to them who lives with a substance use disorder. CRAFT’s curriculum is a highly effective, evidence-based compassionate practice that gives family members tangible strategies to engage  with a loved one in active use. Family members and friends learn how to take care of themselves while also increasing motivation for positive change in their loved ones.

CRAFT Outcomes: 

Identify your loved one’s triggers and results of their use.

Break the patterns that lead to or increase your loved one’s drinking or using.

Develop and improve communication skills to effectively express your needs and requests.

Help your loved one access addiction treatment resources when they are ready.

Learn or re-learn positive self-care and establish personal values that are unaffected by a loved ones’ use.

Identify triggers for violence and develop plans to keep the whole family safe.

 On October 4th, 2023, Family Program Coordinator, Angie Neeley spoke about C.R.A.F.T. to the public on FOX21 New’s Loving Living Local.

C.R.A.F.T is Community Reinforcement and Family Training. It is an evidence-based curriculum designed to help friends and family who are concerned about a loved one’s harmful substance use to engage their loved one in treatment and take better care of themselves.

For every person living with a substance use disorder, there are an average of five loved ones around him/her who are also negatively affected.

*In order to create continuity in this program series, and to promote the maximum benefit of mastering the principals and skills presented in CRAFT, we ask that attendees commit to the full 12-week sequence. The group will be closed at week 3 and anyone wanting to sign up after that time will be added to the waitlist for the next group.*
