Have You Faced Consequences Because of Your Drinking or Other Drug Use? If you face serious consequences from your drinking or drug use, you should carefully consider your next step. Some consequences may seem like random events, never to be repeated, and you may think you’re in control of your substance use. But it probably happened for a reason, and soon enough, you will likely face additional consequences: Loss of job Loss of relationships Expulsion from school You can still take control of your future with the right insight and information. Risk Reduction: Using the Right Information for Better Choices With the right information, you can learn why you behave the way you do with alcohol or other drugs, and what you can do to make better choices. And the road to better decision making starts with understanding. Become Motivated to Change with Our Risk-Reduction Course Our risk-reduction course teaches you to make healthier choices, and helps you understand your substance use. You can examine, perhaps for the first time, your entire attitude, perception and motivation behind drinking and other drug use. This class will give you greater awareness of the risks involved in your choices, and teaches you new strategies to weigh and assess your choices around substance use. Which should help you reduce any unwanted behaviors related to alcohol or other drugs, and identify any consequences long before they happen. Hazelden Betty Ford uses the evidence-based Prime for Life®, a motivational prevention, intervention and pretreatment program specifically designed for adults who make high-risk choices. This includes but is not limited to intoxicated drivers and criminal offenders, college students, and young people charged with alcohol and/or drug offenses. It is designed to change drinking and drug use behaviors by changing beliefs, attitudes, risk perceptions, motivations, and the knowledge of how to reduce their risk of alcohol- and drug-related problems.
