Building Recovery by Improving Goals, Habits, and Thoughts (BRIGHT-2) is a manualized group cognitive behavioral therapy program for co-occurring depression and alcohol and drug use problems. BRIGHT-2 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-2 is an 18-week program consisting of three modules, each of which focuses on a specific topic — thoughts, activities, and people interactions — and how it can affect a person's mood and desire to drink or use drugs. The BRIGHT-2 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 includes the leader's introduction and leader's manual; the leader's manual includes the same material provided to group members, except that it also includes instructions, highlighted in shaded text boxes, to help the group leader present the program material.
