Review:

In the last year, with the PDMT group topic implementation, I have seen a dramatic improvement in overall client engagement and program satisfaction with our mandated client population. While addressing the very real problem of drinking and driving, group topics, such as self-examination and self-regulation, encourage clients to take responsibility regarding AOD use, while also offering a broad application to many other areas that impact their lives, including relationships, employment, finances, and ethics. --Abby Oberg, IMFT, MCA, CSC - Counselor, SDSU DUI Program

The PDMT provides an array of group topics that are easy to use and thought provoking. The topics can be used as is, or adapted to the current program curriculum. What I found particularly helpful are the goals, objectives, and implementation strategies to assist the counselor with group facilitation. Not only are the topics effective in addressing addiction and recovery, but address ethical and moral issues that may contribute to relapse. I truly believe the PDMT has the potential to be utilized in many therapeutic programs. --Ken Wiggins, AS, CATC - Counselor, SDSU DUI Program

I was involved in implementing and training our staff in utilizing the PDMT individual interventions beginning four years ago. As a staff, we strongly encouraged Georgi to develop group s topics in the PDMT spirit. I have been fortunate because my groups participated in the initial research as the pilot groups. My clients, when critiquing the new topics, felt that everyone was able to benefit from the group experience, more because the focus is seemingly not on AOD use, but on real life experiences. I have found the group brings their AOD use into the topic. There also seems to be more connection and trust among group members, including first conviction participants. Thank you, Georgi. --Gail Donner, CAS - Counselor, SDSU DUI Program
