Psychoeducational intervention manuals can help drug abuse treatment counselors educate patients and build patients' skills in important areas. Treatment programs can order copies of manuals developed by the NIDA-supported Drug Abuse Treatment for AIDS-Risk Reduction (DATAR) project covering HIV/AIDS education, assertiveness training for women, and transition to aftercare. A training manual for a visual representation technique called node-link mapping, which can be used to improve counseling effectiveness, also is available. Manuals may be ordered by phone, (309) 827-6026, or by fax, (309) 829-4661, from Lighthouse Institute Publishing, Chestnut Health Systems, 702 W. Chestnut, Bloomington, IL 61701.
