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.

How Our Program Works

Getting Started

  • Sign up and choose an appointment time
  • Discuss your personal drinking goals with our medical team
  • Receive a mobile Bluetooth breathalyzer to measure your alcohol use

Beginning Treatment

  • Consult with our medical team, discuss your care plan, and if desired, obtain a prescription to reduce alcohol cravings
  • Meet with your personal coach to discuss your goals
  • Track your alcohol use with the Ria Health mobile app

Month 1: Tracking Progress

  • Monitor alcohol levels and drinking patterns
  • Communicate with your coach on goals, techniques, and progress
  • Check in with our medical team about your progress and response to medication

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

Month 3: Approaching Goals

  • Members often begin to approach their goals (results may vary)
  • Ria app continues to track progress
  • Medical team monitors and adjusts treatment as needed
  • Coach helps you build healthy habits

… parties are way different. Now, the first drink feels like the first drink did before … but the second drink gives less of a buzz … and the third drink feels like having lemonade. So why drink more? *Results may vary


Month 6: Establishing Lasting Behaviors

  • Ria coaches understand the path to goal attainment is not a straight line and they support members as they change behaviors and overcome setbacks (results may vary)
  • Ria app raises timely alerts to your medical and coach team
  • Prior objective results bolster confidence and factor into medical team treatment decisions
  • Coach helps you understand your triggers and return you to healthier drinking habits

My coach made the difference. She helped me through rough spots, gave motivation, and helped come up with ideas. Following the app twice a day was the other key. *Results may vary
