The effectiveness of psychological intervention programs based on CBGT has been demonstrated for addictive behaviors, such as substance related disorders, gambling disorders, and Paraphilic disorder. The reason why addictive behaviors are problematic is their influence on health by repeating reduction and habit. Therefore, the desired outcomes of CBGT programs for addictive behaviors are relapse prevention and improvements in daily living. These outcomes are indicated by improvements in self-control provided by CBGT programs. Thus, it is important to measure self-control. However, there are various indicators used to measure self-control. In addiction, there is addiction generally common variables and each dependent target every different variable. Furthermore, there is the problem of "denial" as a general issue in addiction. Therefore, it is necessary to use indicators of self-control according to each condition.
