I have found the biggest successes in reducing or abstaining from substance use in the process of working on a big goal that the individual really values and has powerful motivators for. Often in this process it becomes clear at some point that the substance use is not contributing to attaining the goal or may be getting in the way and then reducing or abstaining becomes part of making progress towards the big goal.
Of course, in the mean time, I will employ many of the other approaches discussed including MI, harm reduction, psychoeducation, fact-checking, etc.
