Alcohol treatments with best evidence of effectiveness.

  1. Receiving honest but non-confrontational one-on-one feedback regarding one’s alcohol-related health from a health professional;
  2. Non-confrontational strategic Motivational Interviewing;
  3. The medication acamprosate;
  4. A complex set of cognitive and behavioral methods called the community reinforcement approach by Robert Meyers, Ph.D
  5. The assigning of a Self-Change Manual, also called Bibliotherapy
  6. The medication naltrexone;
  7. Behavioral Self-Control Training (a moderation approach);
  8. Behavioral Contracting for rewards given in exchange for clean drug test results:
  9. Social Skills Training
  10. Behavioral Marital Therapy

I will be adding information and contact info in a new section soon.

A common theme in all of these treatments is empathy and without coercion. Unfortunately, few addiction treatment centers offer them.
