Dr. Eva Hoch
An evidence-based, abstinence-oriented cannabis treatment program, CANDIS was developed by Dr. Eva Hoch, an award-winning and internationally renowned expert in the treatment of cannabis use disorder.
Using motivational enhancement therapy (MET), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and contingency management, this program has proven success with its three main objectives for clients: to realize problematic cannabis use, to participate in treatment, and to abstain from use using relapse prevention skills.
The CANDIS program begins with a client assessment and continues with ten sessions that focus on:
- Physical and psychological effects of marijuana
- Internal and external triggers
- Strategies for change
- Co-occurring disorders
- Withdrawal and relapse management
- Cravings, problem solving, and refusal skills
Ideal for use in a variety of settings, the program is designed for 90-minute sessions but can be modified for shorter time periods. A facilitator manual, a DVD that includes a video overview of marijuana, and a CD-ROM with reproducible client worksheets and fact sheets are all included in this effective, affordable tool for helping clients overcome their dependence on cannabis.
