Treatment Options

Alcohol Use Disorder

When asked how alcohol problems are treated, people commonly think of 12-step programs or 28-day inpatient rehab, but may have difficulty naming other options. In fact, there are a variety of treatment methods currently available, thanks to significant advances in the field over the past 60 years.

Ultimately, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, and what may work for one person may not be a good fit for someone else. Simply understanding the different options can be an important first step.

Behavioural Treatments

Therapy and counselling is the most common form of treatment for alcohol use problems. It can be delivered in many formats including to individuals, couples, families and groups.

Medications

There are several addiction medications that can help people who are addicted to alcohol. A medical doctor can assess if an addiction medication might be helpful for you. All the medications require a prescription and continued use should be supervised by your doctor or by a trained and licensed/registered healthcare provider.
