Approximately six percent of the Unites States’ population struggles with a severe alcohol use disorder. This group and their loved ones will experience devastating consequences. On the plus side, most traditional treatments and self-help groups are geared for their recovery. However, there is a larger number of the population—over 90 million people that have a gap in services. They will avoid getting help for fear of being labeled an alcoholic, forced into treatment, made to attend 12-step meetings, and have to stop drinking completely. As health care providers, we need find ways to help this large number of alcohol users who are not experiencing addiction, but may be dealing with a mild or moderate alcohol use disorder.

This presentation will teach you about a controversial, emerging treatment option: moderation. This presentation is or all levels of clinicians.

Objectives:

  1. Differentiate the four types of drinkers and their treatment needs
  2.  Determine who is a candidate for moderation using research from the “How Do I Know If I Can Keep Drinking Quiz”
  3. Develop and implement a moderate drinking plan using moderation tools for appropriate clients
Agenda:  

12:30-1:15 | Discuss four types of drinkers, ways to identify predictions for who might be a candidate for moderation.

1:15-2:00 | Review ways to develop, implement, and monitor a successful Moderate Drinking Plan with your client.
