PHASE I -UNDERSTANDING WHY YOU DRINK
We all have different experiences that lead us to drinking, and during the initial phase of the program, we’ll work together to undercover some of the reasons that drive your consumption. Once identified, we’ll work together to develop strategies to resolve these problems.
PHASE 2 – UNDERSTANDING ALCOHOL
While our paths to this point may be different, the physiological factors that keep us locked in this loop are similar. During this phase, we’ll discuss how alcohol effects your body and brain. Having an understanding of how alcohol affects you will give you the tools you need to plan.
PHASE 3 – PLAN FOR CHANGE
Now that you have a better understanding of your motivators and the mental process of dependency, you can make an effective plan. I work with you to develop a plan that you can follow during the first days and weeks of your sobriety. We will plan activities and routines that will keep you on track.
PHASE 4 – TAKE THE PLUNGE
Here you take the leap – and I’m right there with you. Once the plan is in place, it’s time to act. I work closely with you during the first days and weeks of your alcohol free life, helping you stick to you plan and make adjustments as necessary. Patience is key during this phase, and I help you stay motivated and focused on your goals.
PHASE 5 – REDESIGN YOUR LIFE
After the first few weeks or months, not drinking becomes easier, and it can be very tempting to have “just one.” I work with you during this phase to identify these thought patterns and develop ways to counter them.
PHASE 6 – LONG TERM PLAN
It’s time to look to the future and plan to keep yourself alcohol free. During this phase, we review your progress, discuss what you’ve learned, and transform the short-term plan into a long-term roadmap that you can use to live your new alcohol free life.
