Boston University Alcohol Screening Tool

by James Heller 14. April 2010 12:35
A comprehensive alcohol screening tool released by the Boston University School of Public Health is available for public use.  This short questionnaire does more than simply determine whether or not individuals suffer from alcohol dependence.  It goes beyond that to assist those who may want to simply alter their drinking habits.

Most alcohol screening tools will assess users for alcohol dependence first, and then, if they are not, point them to informative content about alcohol abuse and dependence.  It seems more effective that a screening tool would assess for a range of problems from alcohol abuse to alcoholism, since there is a difference.

Alcohol abuse can cause legal, financial, and relationship problems even if it only occurs once, for example.  If someone who normally doesn’t drink heavily decides to drink in celebration one night and gets arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), it could also cause problems at work and home.  While this scenario is rare, it does happen.  There are individuals who suffer alcohol related problems every day that result from a range of occasional abuse to alcohol dependence.

The alcohol screening tool by jointogether.org provides tailored information for anyone dealing with alcohol related problems in all ranges of use.  It will tell you if your problems are minor and what you can do to resolve them, or if you need to contact an alcohol treatment center immediately.  Then it provides a directory of local providers in your area.  The link below will bring you to the page so you can get started.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides alcohol detox and alcohol treatment.  We specialize in treatment for mental health and substance use disorders, and have two primary medical care clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley.  If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependence, drug addiction, or co-occurring mental health disorders, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us here.

Teen Alcohol and Drug Abuse: Post-Holiday

by James Heller 28. December 2009 12:46
The dawn of a new year tends to bring a surge in adolescent alcohol and drug abuse.  The obvious reason is that most teens experience a major change in environment when they return to school after an extended period of free time.  This can cause problems with brain development and grades, so it is important to consider youth alcohol and drug treatment at the first sign of abuse.

We all know that drug and alcohol abuse are, in general, symptoms of other issues.  Education can often help teens to understand that substance abuse is not the solution to problems.  But when a pattern begins to develop alcohol and drug treatment should include more.  

For adolescents who need more than addiction counseling services, family services and psychological professionals should be available to ensure comprehensive treatment.  If teens do not receive the treatment they need when they seek it, they will surely return to substance abuse as an answer when issues resurface.

Many teens in alcohol and drug treatment also suffer medical conditions, including HIV.  So the presence of HIV services and primary medical care in treatment provide a continuum of care under one roof.  This provides ease-of-access that promotes stress reduction and improves teens’ chances of long term recovery.

For Native American teens, alcohol and methamphetamine abuse continues to be a major problem.  Providing access to traditional ceremonies is very helpful for their spiritual recovery.  The simple addition of medicine wheel and talking circles can enhance recovery.

Teens need special care available to them when they seek alcohol and drug treatment.  If they don’t get the treatment they need alcohol or drug abuse starts, they are likely to struggle with alcoholism or drug addiction in adulthood.  So treatment should come from a provider that can offer all services.

Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles provides mental health treatment, primary medical care, Native American services, and HIV services as part of our commitment to integrated behavioral healthcare in alcohol and drug treatment.   If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependence or drug addiction, please call us now at 888-777-8565 or contact us here.

Adolescent Alcohol Treatment - Los Angeles

by James Heller 28. May 2009 12:22
One reason that parents should look into adolescent alcohol treatment in Los Angeles is the rise in DUI arrests over the 2009 Memorial Day weekend.  As teen alcohol abuse continues to rise in Los Angeles it is wise to do whatever it takes to prevent our youth from becoming future statistics.

It may seem an over-reaction, when a teen gets drunk at a party, to seek teen alcohol treatment.  But Los Angeles youth face peer pressure along with easier access to alcohol.  Also, where there is adolescent alcohol abuse in Los Angeles, there is an open door to adolescent drug abuse.  So parents should pay special attention to the idea that the one time they know their teen abused alcohol may not be the only time.  It is more likely to be the case than not.

Since DUI arrests and accidents can impact families so heavily, it makes sense to consider adolescent alcohol treatment at the first sign of alcohol problems.  There is no harm in an assessment that may save the life of a teen.  

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides teen alcohol treatment in Los Angeles.  We have outpatient, intensive outpatient, and residential programs to fit every need.  We also provide teen alcohol education to schools and onsite.

For more information on our adolescent alcohol treatment programs, please call 888-777-8565 or contact us here.

The following is from an article that appeared in the Whittier Daily News reporting the DUI statistics for the 2009 Memorial Day weekend.  Concerned parents should read the entire article, and seek more information on DUI in Los Angeles.

-- Begin external content –

Officials report 609 people were arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in Los Angeles County in the first three days of the Memorial Day weekend.

About 9 percent more DUI arrest were reported over the first three days of the holiday weekend compared to the same time period last year.

Through extra patrols and DUI checkpoints, 100 county law enforcement agencies that make up the "Avoid the 100" DUI task force targeted intoxicated drivers.
