Relapse prevention is utilized to help clients build support systems, gain awareness and initiate the process of recovery
and growth. The program focuses on education, self-exploration, problem- solving and relapse prevention; helping clients learn new coping skills to avoid relapse and maintain a healthy long-term recovery and incorporates the 12-step philosophy.
For those individuals who are suffering from substance abuse disorders and are not receptive to the 12 Step model, we offer Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT). The guiding principal of the intervention is that people perceive life in an irrational manner and learning techniques to combat distorted thinking patterns can lead to less anxiety and depression and therefore, abstinence from alcohol and other drugs. REBT is particularly helpful for persons who have histories of chronic relapse and have been unsuccessful in arresting the addiction through AA or NA.
ALE also provides substance abuse services to those individuals who fall under the federal regulations of the Department of Transportation (DOT). Please contact office for futher information.
You can trust our ALE counselors to help bring you back to your old self.
