Abstract

Twelve‐step facilitation (TSF) is becoming an important approach to the therapy of addiction. It proved an equally effective method as one of the three psychosocial approaches used in Project MATCH during the 90s1‐with the added advantage of helping drinkers to replace prodrinking networks with more supportive peers2. Here Addiction Series editor Martin Weegmann and Tim Leighton share their experiences of using the twelve‐step methods and describe the skills and techniques that can be used by any therapist on almost any client.
