Ask: "Are you drinking or using drugs while in treatment?" "Are you planning to drink after you complete Treatment?"
If yes, see if you can manage it. Choose a plan to control your use, e.g., "I'll drink only two 12 oz. beers when I drink. See if you can do this. See if you can stop at two.
Try it for a month. If you fail, try treatment.
To Thine Own Self Be True!
