Grey-Area Drinking: What Is It & Why We Need to Start Talking About It

Friday, May 24 | 4:05pm - 5:05pm

Presented by 
Kristy Sarausky

What is Grey-Area Drinking?  Why do we need this new category when discussing alcohol consumption?  How can we address alcohol consumption in a gentle and compassionate way that doesn’t invoke further shame? How can we support those who want to get help but may not resonate with traditional recovery methods? 


Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Define grey-area drinking and see where it fits on the spectrum of alcohol use disorder.

  • Discuss the importance of varied terminology when talking about substance use disorder.

  • Offer more support and resources to their patients who identify as grey area drinkers.
