Alternatives, a unique outpatient treatment facility near Beverly Hills that specializes in the treatment of alcohol problems and compulsive habits, announced in November that it has expanded its facilities to four times its original size and has added a new family support program.

Alternatives’ significant growth, all within its first year of operation, demonstrates the need for a moderate drinking treatment, according to the organizers behind the program designed by addiction experts Drs. Marc Kern and Adi Jaffe.

The Alternatives program combines over three decades of clinical experience and research on moderate drinking methods for alcohol abuse and compulsions with the latest technology and monitoring tools. 

Kern’s and Jaffe’s structured outpatient program has helped increase the odds of recovery with an evidence-based and data-driven approach called Bio-Affective Management.

Since opening its doors in February, Alternatives has helped approximately 20 clients succeed in their goal to “reduce their consumption and avoid substance related consequences.”

In addition to one-week, two-month and six-month treatment options, Alternatives is offering a new support program dedicated to the loved ones of clients so they can learn to deal with the addictive behavior, learn more about the process of treatment and proceed on their own road to recovery. In order to help its community outreach efforts, Alternatives will also be doubling its self-help groups as the demand for such care grows.

“When it comes to addiction, it’s rarely black or white," Jaffe said. "There are many shades of gray and until Alternatives was created it seemed addiction treatment providers weren’t looking at alternative options."
