Nearly 90% of treatment facilities adhere to a complete abstinence from alcohol treatment model. We are not one of them.
Only about 6% of the population can be classified as alcoholic, yet most treatment facilities provide programs as if all drinkers were alcoholics. We can help you determine if you can continue drinking and give you the tools to implement a Moderate Drinking Plan.
While it is important to have some substance free time, we will not discharge you from treatment if you relapse. It is actually an opportunity to see what was not working and be an effective learning experience.
“Drinking alcohol is like eating donuts. Having one or two occasionally is not going to hurt you, but having several a day will eventually lead to serious consequences.”
About the book
Can I Keep Drinking: How You Can Decide When Enough is Enough is for the 90-million-plus people who struggle with alcohol in the United States. Most 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. Only about 6 percent of the population is alcoholic yet more than 80 percent of treatment programs require total abstinence from alcohol. I challenge this old belief and teach you how to have a better relationship with alcohol.
As if you and I were sitting in my office, I provide you with easy-to-follow tools, checklists, and quizzes to guide you through the process of answering the title’s question. Included throughout are experiences of people who have struggled with drinking. The “How Do I Know If I Can Keep Drinking? Quiz” gives you positive and negative predictors for whether you are a candidate for moderate drinking and prepares you to develop and implement a Moderate Drinking Plan.
