1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Abstract
    This manuscript provides a comprehensive review of CBT treatments for PDs, including a
    description of the available treatments and empirical support, drawing on research published
    between 1980 and 2009. Research generally supports the conclusion that CBT is an effective
    treatment modality for reducing symptoms and enhancing functional outcomes among patients
    with PDs, thereby making it a useful framework for clinicians working with patients with PD
    symptomotology. However, there is clear need for further the development and evaluation to
    provide specific and more unambiguous treatment recommendations, with particular relevance for
    understudied PDs.
