Beat the Kick available in English

People with mild to borderline intellectual disability can become addicted — for instance, to alcohol and drugs, but also to the internet and video games. How can we help them to overcome their addiction? Beat the Kick might help.

Beat the Kick is a new training to motivate people with mild to borderline intellectual disability and addiction problems to change their behaviour. The intervention Beat the kick was found to be effective to facilitate autonomous motivation for engaging with addiction treatment (Frielink, Schuengel, Kroon & Embregts, 2015).

We are proud to share that Beat the Kick is available in English. On this website you can found out more about the training.
