LATER OUTPATIENT ALCOHOL TREATMENT

Later treatment with a recovering alcoholic patient [Section 38] involves the same three broad components as early treatment, as discussed in Section 27:

  • Use behavioral management approaches [Section 25] to control the patient’s temptations to drink.
  • Use psychodynamic therapy [Section 37] to help the patient deal with internal and external issues more effectively without the need for alcohol.
  • Look for changes in the patient [Section 35] and adapt the treatment to meet changing needs. This part can include dealing with any lapse or relapse to drinking.

In addition, completion of later treatment leads to planned termination [Section 28].
