We build evidence-based digital programs that provide non-judgmental feedback and self-guided protocols which empower people to reduce or stop alcohol and substance use. CheckUp & Choices has been featured in prominent media including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and NPR. Our digital protocols have been evaluated in clinical trials published in peer-reviewed journals, showing clinically-relevant outcomes in randomized clinical trials funded by NIH.
