The decision to work on ourselves is a decision to face our deepest fears—our most painful truths. Accepting alcohol is running your life can be frightening. For many it takes a crisis like a DUI, divorce, or serious health complications to accept help and AA or rehab become the only options. Our treatment embraces technology, medication, and experience to help you decide if you want to stop or simply reduce your drinking.

Ria Health is intended for alcoholics or anyone who would rather drink less, from people who tend to have a few too many at parties, to people who drink a bottle of liquor every day. The idea is to change problematic drinking habits before they get out of hand.

Drinking less than half what I used to drink on a usual day. I should cut down some more… but already feeling so much better. Waking up in the morning without a full bottle headache to take to work is a wonderful new normal. *Results may vary
