For several abused substances, craving is an indicator of future use. A key goal of substance abuse treatment is to help patients abstain from drug use despite craving. How well do such treatments work? Weiss et al. (p. 1320) examined the relationship between craving and subsequent use among patients receiving one of four treatments for cocaine dependence. Each treatment included group drug counseling, but three added another type: individual drug counseling, supportive-expressive psychodynamic therapy, or cognitive therapy. Patients receiving individual drug counseling plus group counseling had the best cocaine use outcomes. In addition, this treatment combination attenuated the link between craving and use, i.e., greater craving was not associated with as much additional cocaine use. Individual drug counseling is more prescriptive than the other treatments (e.g., "Avoid places where you used to use drugs"), and this straightforward behavioral approach may help patients to abstain despite craving.
