Since negative feelings toward disulfiram could have been partially responsible for a lack of disulfiram compliance, Azrin added motivational procedures to help clients view disulfiram in a positive manner. While describing the disulfiram program to clients, counselors made an effort to describe the medication as a chemical time-delay device which gave the client time to think over a decision rather than to act impulsively. This description emphasized the positive aspect of disulfiram and helped clients to realize that choosing to take the medication could help them take better control of their decisions.

Once a client agrees to sample sobriety, a reasonable period of time must be selected. We begin by suggesting a relatively lengthy period, such as 90 days, with the understanding that this will leave plenty of room for negotiation downward. The suggestion is backed by the rationale that the first 90 days appears to be the time during which most relapses occur (Marlatt & Gordon, 1985). Perhaps not surprisingly, most clients report that they are unwilling or unable to make a 90-day commitment. We do not interpret this as resistance, but instead work with the client to select a shorter time period that appears challenging yet obtainable.
