Healthy Lifestyles Guided Self-Change
We offer services for people concerned about their alcohol, drug, or tobacco use, gambling, weight-gain, credit card use, or other lifestyle concerns. The program helps people to help themselves by taking major responsibility for guiding their own change and using their own strengths and resources to resolve their problems.
Who We Help
The healthy lifestyles program at Nova Southeastern University provides services to individuals who have alcohol, cocaine, or marijuana problems that are not severe. Smoking cessation services are also available. Our guided self-change treatment is a motivational intervention involving an assessment, four sessions, and two aftercare contacts, with additional sessions available. This program is based on evidence showing that many persons meeting the above criteria prefer and are able to take responsibility for dealing effectively with their alcohol or drug abuse.
