Individuals typically choose Maintenance Groups after participating in a Consultation with one of our Directors or a Senior Counselor. This group is a good fit for you if you are committed to making the change to a low risk relationship with alcohol and/or some other drug which may include the choice of abstinence.
For this group, maintenance is defined as the process of reinforcing the commitment to action in changing behaviors. Choosing our maintenance group would mean you have expressed a desire to stop the high risk of use of alcohol and/or other drugs, and have come to the decision that a lower risk lifestyle is your best choice.
This group is facilitated by our Directors or Senior Counselors, uses a present and future focused perspective based on Motivational Interviewing and Positive Psychology. Elements of Prime Solutions from the Prevention Research Institute may also be used for the development of real life tools for increasing the accomplishment of your goals.
This is a small group which is intended to create a supportive environment for people who have made a change in their alcohol and drug misuse and for those who may be starting out their journey toward/of abstinence.
