Hazelden’s “Living in Balance”

Living in Balance is a research based, flexible, practical, and user-friendly substance abuse treatment curriculum that helps clients address issues in lifestyle areas that may have been neglected during addiction. Living in Balance was developed by Danya International with funding from National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

Hazelden Publishing’s flagship program for addiction treatment meets DSM-5 classifications and revised to reflect the most current information on substance use disorders. Research-based and listed on the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), this flexible program draws from cognitive-behavioral, experiential, and Twelve Step approaches to help clients achieve lifelong recovery. Sessions can be easily customized for specific client populations or treatment tracks. The Core Program is made up of twelve unique sessions to help clients address life issues that are central to achieving successful recovery. In addition to the 12 core sessions contained in this package, Living in Balance offers 25 additional sessions for recovery management and 10 sessions for co-occurring disorders.
