One in eight American adults now meets diagnostic criteria for an alcohol-use disorder. A condition that kills 88,0001 people a year—more than all other drugs combined other than nicotine.2
Beyond the cost in lives, heavy drinking negatively impacts brain function, contributes to heart disease, causes several liver diseases, damages the pancreas, and increases the likelihood of cancers of the mouth, throat, esophagus, stomach, colon, and breast.
Aware's Yale University inspired, evidence-based treatment has shown long-term, in-home care is a more effective way to treat chronic alcoholism.

Our in-home addiction treatment model is not a linear process like most other treatment programs.
We take an individualized approach to address whatever needs our client has, and as their outside supports are strengthened, the number of visits with our team will decrease.
Here's How That Works:
- Meet & Greet:
- One of the first steps is the Meet & Greet. Our medical team performs a series of assessments to determine the appropriate level of care and initial services
- First Home Visit:
- Once the appropriate level of care has been determined, the client is introduced to their care team
- Client receives an overview of Aware Recovery Care program
- We work with the client to transform their home into the “Treatment Center”
- Care Coordinator develops and maintains Treatment Plan:
- Once the client has met with their care team and they have been given an overview of how their program is going to work, a Psychiatric Evaluation is scheduled
- There will be regular checks of client’s vitals
- Client is connected with Outside Providers (Primary Care Physician, Individual Therapist, or Medical Specialists)
- Certified Recovery Advisor (CRA) helps with goal setting and community assimilation:
- The Certified Recovery Advisor (CRA) helps connect the client to community recovery resources
- CRA utilizes the Recovery Wellness Plan to help the client explore what they want for their recovery
- CRA takes the client through a series of Intervention Guidelines that directly applies to what the client is struggling with
- CRA administers Urine Drug Screenings as a non-punitive awareness tool
- Family Education Facilitator meets with the family of the client to support their recovery:
- As the client begins their journey to health, their Aware team will work with and support their family, too - Family Systems Therapy session is scheduled for the client and their family
- Family Education Facilitator takes the client’s family through a series of Intervention Guidelines that directly applies to what they are struggling with
- We connect the client’s family to family recovery resources
Throughout the entire treatment process there will be many team meetings to ensure continued alignment with the client, the care team, the family, and their goals.
