When done with the CheckUp, you can choose to do nothing, cut back, or stop drinking. The Moderate program helps you develop the skills to successfully cut back on your drinking. The Abstain program is for those who decide to stop drinking altogether. Though achieving different goals, both programs utilize clinically proven, cognitive behavioral tools.
"I loved the (Choices) course….and it was very helpful to me in making the changes I wanted to make."-J.B.
"Your site hit right on the button. It’s already making a difference, just needed help to focus on the issue. Thanks."-D.R.
The program can send you weekly emails with links to exercises that guide you through a natural, 12-week, sequence. At 3 months, the program will email you an invitation to login for a follow-up - the CheckIn. Your feedback will focus on the changes in your alcohol-related problems and general wellbeing.
The CheckUp, Moderate, and Abstain elements in the CheckUp & Choices program have been proven to help individuals change their drinking. Three randomized clinical trials have found that the CheckUp alone was enough to motivate individuals to change their drinking. The Moderate and Abstain modules have also been proven to work in randomized clinical trials. If you decide to change, our program can help you be successful.
