The basis of Stop At Two’s treatment program is medication. Stop At Two uses FDA-approved medication to curb a patient’s cravings for alcohol. These medications are proven to significantly reduce cravings and consequently lead to less alcohol consumption in most patients. In general, a person is able to drink alcohol, but not to excess. There are several FDA-approved medications that Stop At Two uses as well as other medications that can also lead to less alcohol consumption.
While the medications work for the majority of people they are not always as effective on their own. This is why a large part of Stop At Two’s program involves brief interventional counseling services.
