Dr. Adam Frankel, and Dr. Andrew Tatarsky conducted the 5th Optimal Live Talk on December 6, 2017 at 1 pm EST. Our topic was ‘Find Your path to Optimal Drinking’. We discussed skills and strategies for cultivating your optimal relationship to alcohol (and other drugs and risky behaviors). You can use these tips to stay safe and manage challenging situations during the holiday season. We discussed practical strategies to help you be more mindful of urges and cravings so you can navigate challenging situations with more confidence and ease based on your personal goals whether moderation, recreation, control or abstinence.
