Alternatives Behavioral Health, LLC adopts a truly revolutionary approach to outpatient alcoholism and addiction treatment. Rather than viewing sobriety as the sole alternative to addiction, Alternatives empowers clients to healthily manage alcohol use. Alternative’s Bio-Affective Management system provides clients with addiction education and guides individuals to produce evidence-based strategies for balanced lifestyle choices. Alternatives works with clients to address the relationship between emotions and self-destructive behaviors while providing evidence-based techniques to improve life skills and develop healthy coping mechanisms.
