Abstract

A strengths-based approach to case management is being used as an intervention to assist persons with substance abuse problems to access needed resources. The same strengths-based practice activities that support resource acquisition are also effective in addressing the denial that can interfere with substance abuse treatment. Both benefits, resource acquisition and a constructive approach to denial, have shown promise for enhancing client participation in treatment and subsequent outcome from that treatment.
