WHAT IS ALCOHOL MANAGEMENT?

The HEAL AT HOME method is based on the scientifically developed model of selective extinction which has been proven to reduce cravings for alcohol. Our program is inspired by The Sinclair Method.

Because we are a alcohol addiction clinic, our clients can achieve lasting results with minimal disruption to their work and family lives.


How can we help?

The Heal at Home Alcohol Management Program is based on the scientifically developed model of selective extinction which has been proven to reduce cravings for alcohol. No detox or “clean-time” is required prior to starting the Alcohol Management Program. To the contrary, drinking is a part of the treatment during the initial phase. The Heal at Home Alcohol Management Program is available from any location of choice through confidential one-to-one live virtual sessions.


Key points about our Alcohol Management Program

Medication - We use a non - narcotic, non-addictive medication in a targeted fashion to address the physiological part of the addiction and break the cycle of reinforcement.
Scientifically proven results -
No detox or clean-time required - Patients start the program at their current levels of consumption and experience a gradual reduction over the course of the program.
100% Private – All patient sessions are 1 on 1 with a certified addiction therapist an physician.
Access - Patients can have all of their sessions virtually via secure video conferencing. This means treatment can be done alongside someone's day to day life and is flexible.

THE THEORETICAL BASIS OF THE METHOD IS SIMPLE

  • Alcohol drinking is a learned behavior.

  • Learned behaviors can be unlearned — or “extinguished” — when the behavior is performed but no reinforcement or reward follows.

  • The “reward” or reinforcement to the brain from drinking alcohol is stimulation of the opioid receptors — and those receptors can be blocked with medications.

  • So the learned behavior of alcohol drinking is unlearned over time if it only occurs while medication is present.

HOW DOES THERAPY HELP?

Medication alone is not sufficient because a total change of a way of life is involved. The Therapy provides a channel to observe what things and feelings are related to drinking from various points of view and to plan a new life free of dependence upon alcohol. The sessions are important for educating the client about how the extinction works and how to accentuate the benefits from it. It is also critical to assure clients in the early stages that the cravings and drinking will decrease slowly over many weeks, and that they should not worry if they do not see immediate improvement.
