Harm Reduction Psychotherapy: Practical Applications


Over 90 million people in the United States struggle with their alcohol use but are not physically dependent. Traditional treatment is designed for those with a severe alcohol use disorder, encompassing about 19 million individuals, leaving the majority experiencing problems without appropriate services. With the DSM-5-TR viewing substance use disorders on a spectrum, behavioral healthcare providers need to have resources that are appropriate for all levels of the #1 substance of use. There is over 50 years of research that supports the harm reduction strategy of alcohol moderation as an effective treatment option. Upon completion of the presentation, attendees will be able to: describe why harm reduction is an effective treatment option for the majority of alcohol users, predict who is a candidate for alcohol moderation using the Alcohol Moderation Assessment, develop and monitor an Alcohol Moderation Plan, and utilize alcohol moderation tools.
