Transformations in Rehab -Behavioural Treatments For Alcoholism

Behavioural treatments for alcoholism (which is also sometimes known as alcohol counseling) are designed to help alcoholics to change the behaviour of alcoholics creating transformations in their lives. This is because drinking heavily can alter a person's behaviour - and usually not in a positive way.

Often, behaviour treatments can help alcoholics to develop the skills that they need to stop drinking, as well as correcting their behaviour. And there are also quite a few different types of these treatments, too. These are cognitive–behavioural therapy, motivational enhancement therapy, brief interventions and last but not least, marital and family counselling.

Cognitive–behavioural therapy for alcoholism

Cognitive–behavioural therapy sessions can often be either one-on-one with a professional therapist or within small groups - and the main focus is to help addicts to identify which emotions and situations are their alcoholism triggers (an alcoholism trigger is what makes somebody want to drink).

Once they know what these triggers are, whether they're feelings, people, places, or anything else that the alcoholic believes is a trigger, they can be helped to learn how to deal with them in a another way (one that doesn't involve drinking). Not only can this help to change their behaviour and help them to become sober, but it can also help to lessen the chances of relapse, too.

Motivational enhancement therapy for alcohol treatment

Motivational enhancement therapies are often conducted over a short period of time and their main purpose is to build up and strengthen an addicts' motivation to change their behaviour.

It often consists of helping alcoholics to understand the good and bad of seeking treatment, making plans to change their drinking habits, building their confidence and also helping them to develop skills that will help them to stick to their plans.

Brief interventions for alcohol addiction

Brief interventions are also usually short one-on-one or small-group counselling sessions. The professional therapist will give the alcoholic information about their drinking pattern and the potential risks that can come with continuing it.

After getting their feedback, the counselor will then be able to work with them to set goals and get some ideas as to how they can stop this pattern.

Marital and family counselling for alcoholics

In general, marital and family counselling (which is also known as family treatment) will include the help of family members and partners during the treatment process. This can help to mend family relationships that may have been damaged by drinking.

With the support of a strong family in marital and family counselling, the chances of an alcoholic becoming sober and remaining sober can increase dramatically.
