In addition to my counseling practice, I have continued to facilitate Denver’s Moderation Management group since 2002. (www.moderation.org). This program is for problem drinkers who hope to learn moderation in a supportive, accountable group setting, using a scientifically based approach to problem drinking.
I encourage people interested in learning more about the program to attend a Moderation Management meeting, held on Tuesday nights, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at The First Unitarian Church, 1400 Lafayette Street, Denver, CO 80218. Meetings are casual, accepting, and non-judgmental. Donations are accepted for use of the room, brochures, books, etc. For people who prefer a closed, private 8 week support group for problem drinkers, I offer this as well, at my offices at People House and in SE Denver.
Responsible Drinking, A Moderation Management Approach For Problem Drinkers, by Frederick Rogers, Psy.D, Marc F. Kern, Ph.D, and Rudy Hoeltzel at a reduced price in my office and at MM meetings ($16.00). This up-to-date, comprehensive, resource book offers everything you need to know about moderation and what to do if abstinence is needed instead.
