Drug and Alcohol Rehab and Treatment Alternatives...

Drug and Alcohol Rehab and Treatment Alternative at the St Jude Retreat House: "the treatment with the best overall score was by far brief intervention, followed by social skills training and motivational enhancements. Brief intervention is as simple as having the client agree to reduce his or her drinking or drugging or to refrain from drinking and drugging altogether. Motivational enhancement involves the client deciding what is important in his or her life and then adjusting his or her drinking and drugging accordingly. Both processes are far less confrontational than the methods generally employed in conventional treatment, and, actually, motivational enhancement is designed to be completely non-confrontational."
