Outpatient Alcohol and Drug Treatment

You are unique and this program is designed to be individualized.  Alternatives’ approach is largely based on Motivational Interviewing: helping people discover their own motivation and skills to change drug/alcohol use.  We think that Abstinence (no use of drugs or alcohol) is probably easier and more effective for many people in the long run. However, we also encourage Harm Reduction (learning to manage your use) for people who can’t see themselves quitting, at least not quitting right now.  Services in AOD are tailored to fit your need and your schedule, as much as possible.  We believe that drug/alcohol use is one way we attempt to manage our emotions and our life issues. It doesn’t always work.  So, we offer tools and solutions other than using substances.
