RAD - Responsible Alcohol Use Discussion Group with AcuDetox – An Integrative Approach
You feel like you don't belong in any group. Your drinking has moved beyond the social drinking stage, but you have not yet moved into the alcoholic stage. You are concerned about your drinking, ready to do something, but it seems like a lifetime of abstinence is the only option. This 10 week psycho-education group will break down the issues and help you become the responsible drinker you want to be. Each week consists of 1 hour of AcuDetox, followed by 1.5 hours of group therapy.
Hitting bottom is a choice, not a requirement.
The group will have between 5 and 8 participants and a professional counselor. It is a closed group, which means all participants will start together and go through the program at the same pace.
Week 1 will mostly focus on introductions to the program and more importantly, to each other.
Week 10 will be our wrap-up group, a chance to review the work we have done and perhaps exchange contact information with other participants.
Weeks 2 – 9 will be the substance of the program where we will learn much about drinking, ourselves, our motives, and most importantly, how to take back control.
Education and behavior modification will be large components of RAD.
