Are You Struggling With Alcohol Abuse and Dependence?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Alcohol Abuse and Dependence

People who have experienced alcohol abuse or have a loved one who has experienced alcohol abuse know how debilitating it can be. People who have substance use or dependence issues may suffer mental health problems alongside the substance use issues or because of them.

Available Treatment Options

Therapy for people experiencing alcohol abuse and dependence includes behavioral interventions to reduce problematic usage of alcohol.

Therapists may use techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), such as recognizing unhelpful thoughts about alcohol, and Motivational Interviewing, such as circular questioning, to emphasize why a person should avoid using substances. Other interventions that may be helpful for people experiencing alcohol abuse and dependence include attending group support meetings, relapse prevention programs, or even residential treatment.
