Alcohol Overuse Treatment
Do I have a problem with alcohol?
Symptoms of a problematic relationship with alcohol include drinking more than planned, spending excessive time related to drinking (e.g., planning to drink, drinking, recovering from drinking), increased alcohol tolerance, craving alcohol, giving up other activities, struggling to keep up with responsibilities, trouble with family and friends, alcohol withdrawal symptoms, getting into risky situations, health/legal problems, and inability to stop drinking.
What type of approach do you use?
We use primarily a motivational and mindfulness-based approach, both of which have significant research backing. We focus on motivation for reducing alcohol, exploration of your relationship with alcohol, prevention of drinking, increasing awareness of alcohol cravings and triggers, providing strategies to use in the moment when craving alcohol, teaching you to regroup after relapsing, and helping you feel better physically and emotionally.
