Building Recovery by Improving Goals, Habits, and Thoughts (BRIGHT) is a manualized group cognitive behavioral therapy program for depression in individuals with co-occurring alcohol and drug use problems. BRIGHT has been designed so that non–mental health practitioners, and practitioners with less formal training than professional mental health counselors, can deliver the program, thus providing evidence-based depression treatment to individuals who often do not receive it. BRIGHT is a 16-week program consisting of four modules, each of which focuses on a specific topic — thoughts, activities, people interactions, and substance abuse — and how it can affect a person's mood. The BRIGHT manual consists of a leader's introduction, a session-by-session group leader manual, and a session-by-session group member's workbook; this volume is the group member's workbook.
