Assessed the clinical applicability of a broad-spectrum behavioral treatment (aversion, contractual management, booster sessions, group contact and support) previously reported by H. Lando (see record 1978-04050-001). The feasibility of reorienting nonabstinent Ss to maintained reduction was also assessed. 12 of 16 Ss who completed treatment were abstinent at a 6-mo follow-up (75%), and 2 others were smoking substantially less than at baseline. Results suggest that the previous findings are replicable and that this program can be applied on a self-supporting clinical basis.
