Strategies for mindful moderate drinking
If you are concerned about your drinking and want to reduce your alcohol consumption rather stop drinking completely, we can help.
Our Alcohol Moderation Program is for problem drinkers who want to learn how to moderate their drinking and keep it within safer limits. It is an educational and skills-training group/workshop, not an alcoholism treatment program. In the meetings you will learn a variety of practical strategies and techniques to help you take charge of when, where, and how much you drink. The goal is to help you break free of habitual unhealthy drinking patterns and learn how to drink more mindfully, more moderately, and more safely.
An alcohol harm reduction program
Designed specifically for non-addicted drinkers, this research-tested program uses proven harm reduction strategies to help you take charge of what, when, and much you drink.
This program that will provide you with valuable actionable information without pressuring you to make a commitment to change.
The program consists of 12 weekly workshop meetings, each beginning with a brief lecture followed by open discussion to enhance the personal relevance of the material and accelerate the learning process. Participants are asked to keep a digital drinking log, monitor their BAC levels, and complete selected readings and brief homework assignments.
For maximum effect, the moderate drinking techniques described in the workshop can be supplemented by Sinclair Method treatment with naltrexone, a non-addictive medication shown to be effective in reducing excessive drinking.
If you are interested in participating in the Drink Smartly program with or without Sinclair Method naltrexone treatment, please contact Dr. Washton to schedule your initial consultation.
