(Moderate Risk Classification/Early Intervention Counseling)
These groups are designed to explore and address problems or risk factors that appear to be related to substance use, and to help the individual recognize the harmful consequences of inappropriate alcohol/substance use.
Participants are encouraged to examine how his/her current use of alcohol or other drugs may be harmful or impair ability to meet responsibilities and achieve personal goals.
Participants are encouraged to explore the potential benefits of reduced substance use, increasing the client’s awareness that changes in substance use lifestyle may result in personally relevant positive outcomes.
The goal is to increase the individual’s understanding of the need to alter their current pattern of use to prevent harm that may be related to such use, and to acquire specific skills to change their behavior.
