How did our Managing Alcohol Use program get developed?

Featured Image

MindBeacon is committed to evidence-based care. Our programs are developed by clinical psychologists with expertise in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), research evidence, and the issues we address in therapy. Developed in consultation with experts at The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), this program uses the principles of CBT and a harm reduction approach to manage alcohol consumption and develop strategies to cope with cravings. The managing alcohol use program is a new offering developed using best practices in treatment for alcohol use.

This program is for individuals looking to change their relationship with alcohol which includes those who regularly consume alcohol above the amounts recommended by the LRAD guidelines. The program is not for individuals where the use of alcohol interferes with daily activities or if there is a physical dependency requiring the support of a physician or other medical expert.

For more information about alcohol use and managing your relationship with alcohol, check out our Ask a Therapist webinar recording below. The webinar featured our own therapists and Dr. Kevin Shield from The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) who has been studying the impacts of alcohol throughout his career:
