Moderation is Possible
We often hear that abstinence is the only solution to problem drinking, but over the past few decades other options have emerged. The medication naltrexone, for example, has been shown to help people relearn moderation by blocking the pleasurable effects of alcohol. The Sinclair Method, which makes use of this drug, has a 78% long-term success rate.
At Ria, we believe in harm reduction—using whichever strategy will make the biggest difference in a person’s health. We support abstinence when it’s the best fit, but we also believe that moderation can be the best path for many people. Our approach gets results: On average, our members reduce their drinking by 75% within 12 months.

Ria’s program allows you to choose moderation or abstinence. Our members set their own goals, and our physicians customize treatment to their needs. We offer many treatment options, so if one approach doesn’t work for you, you can always try another.
Have you tried 12 step programs or AA and found that you didn’t agree with the philosophy?
Ria Health meets you where you are. We don’t require you to subscribe to any perspective to get help, or even require you to identify as an alcoholic. Whatever your goals or needs may be, we’ll support you in changing your relationship with alcohol.
Are you too busy to put your life on hold for rehab? Does it seem too expensive, without enough long-term support?
Our convenient app lets you do things on your schedule, from anywhere, without ever having to visit a doctor’s office or rehab center. Our program is designed to be affordable over a 12 month period, giving you ongoing support for long enough to establish real change.

Can Moderation Really Work?
Listen to Ria member Rich K discuss his struggles with abstinence, and his success with moderation through Ria’s program:
[Ria’s program] has literally solved a problem for me that I did not think was actually a problem to be solved, ever. I thought that I’d either have to be going through painful, awful uncertainty with continuing drinking, or a very, very painful certainty of being sober all the time…*

More Ria Health Reviews
Through Ria’s program, I gained the ability to control my drinking. My coach gave me tools to better understand why I drink and to see the bigger picture. The medication was also a life-saver…I am happy to say after ten years of heavy drinking, I no longer abuse alcohol!*
– Rob in California
Monitoring my intake with the breathalyzer [included in the program] was a motivation to not drink too much, as well as taking naltrexone an hour before, which caused me to pause and delay my drinking. I now have much better awareness around my drinking, and my cravings for alcohol are gone.*
