Reinforcement-Based Treatment (RBT)

< Back to All Resources

Reinforcement-Based Treatment (RBT) for substance use disorders is an intensive, behavioral treatment model that reinforces non-substance–using behaviors and teaches avoidance of substance use triggers. Treatment strategies include contingency management, motivational interviewing, and community reinforcement. RBT has been implemented with patients in a community-based, substance use treatment center and with pregnant women with substance use disorders.
