Good Moderation Candidate?
The Best Moderation Candidates
The best candidates for alcohol moderation using the ReNova TRIAD method of recovery have one or more certain factors:
Almost everyone under the age of 35 is a good candidate for moderation and this option is often more practical for them to reduce the chance of relapse over time v. a sobriety approach to recovery.
The more successes an individual has experienced, the more likely they are to succeed at moderation. This has less to do with self confidence than it does with self discipline in achieving goals.
General good health is an important consideration. Any health concern needs to be considered carefully. Usually if these concerns are already well managed and stable moderation can be an option.
For those whose social or business requirements demand a lot of entertaining and/or travel moderation could be an important factor.
Relapse After Treatment
People who have been through a previous alcoholism treatment program and have not succeeded at remaining sober can often succeed better with a moderation approach instead. Because a fresh approach bring more emotional energy and new hope for a better way.
