Nearly 90 million people in the United States struggle with alcohol use but are not addicted. Most of them will avoid getting help for fear of being labeled an alcoholic, forced into treatment, made to attend 12-Step meetings, and having to stop drinking completely. This presentation will teach how to differentiate four types of drinkers and their treatment needs, determine who is a candidate for moderate drinking using research from the “How Do I Know If I Can Keep Drinking Quiz,” and review tools for developing and implementing a moderate drinking plan for appropriate clients.
Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to:
Differentiate four types of drinkers and their treatment needs.
