Spanish Low Intensity Outpatient - Not CurrentlyAvailable

This program is conducted in Spanish and is designed to educate participants about the disease of addiction and recovery. By utilizing lecture and discussion, the information will be given to participants in an non-threatening, understandable manner. The program is eight weeks in duration, three hours each session on Mondays from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Sessions are held at Eastminster United Presbyterian Church at 3930 Gallatin Pike, Nashville, TN. The church is on the Metro bus route 26.

Participants will be given information on and have the opportunity to process a different topic each week. Each lecture stands alone thereby allowing a person to begin the program at any point in the group itinerary schedule. The program is designed for participants determined to be substance abusers or alcoholic/addicts. They may be referred due to legal, family or employment problems due to alcohol or other drug use or for a person who simply wants to learn how to change their life damaging behaviors. This group is also used for on-going assessment of participants who may not have yet recognized the problems they are having with substance use. Among the issues addressed in the program are the disease of addiction, consequences of substance abuse, 12 step recovery, feelings and defenses associated with addiction, medical problems caused as a result of substance use and how addiction effects the family.
