Alcohol Education Program Level II

Community Health ServicesFor those clients requiring LEVEL II Education, Community Health Services has designed a comprehensive sixteen (16) hour education program that teaches the participants the difference between controlled and responsible vis-a-vis irresponsible drinking. This level of education is for the potential problem drinker or drug abuser.

A LEVEL II client typically has abused alcohol/drugs on several occasions, may have a prior alcohol related arrest or conviction, has experienced productivity decrease at work, may have family problems associated with alcohol use, may have experienced a change in tolerance, may have had a blackout, and may demonstrate a psychological dependence on alcohol/drugs.

Community Health Services' basic program is a substance abuse curriculum, using a Cognitive-Behavioral Approach. The therapeutic, cognitive-behavioral approach in provision of services meets program standards specified by the Department of Behavioral Health Licensure. The substance abuse curriculum proposed is designed to address specific issues directly related to substance abuse behavior. It addresses physical, emotional, and social factors that affect individual's abuse of substances and their recovery.
