Summary The contributors to this volume review and critique research efforts to use contingency management interventions to motivate behavior change among illicit-drug abusers. Each chapter is intended to be sufficiently detailed and current to be of value to researchers, clinicians, and policymakers alike who are involved in decreasing illicit-drug abuse
This volume begins with a chapter that details the conceptual and empirical foundations of contingency management approaches illustrated in the remainder of the book. The diversity of settings, drug problems, and people whose lives have been positively affected by the use of contingency management procedures is demonstrated. The information in this text will provide guidance to practitioners interested in the application of specific contingency management interventions and will also be of value as a teaching tool for illustrating rigorous clinical research.
