Who is Ria Health for?
The short answer is, anyone who wants to change their relationship with alcohol, whether that is to completely stop drinking, reduce your alcohol intake, or change
Ria’s flexibility makes it ideal for people with busy schedules, and those who don’t feel traditional AA or rehab are the right fit.
Before your program I was a daily drinker. Mostly wine but mostly the entire bottle in one sitting. Since taking your counseling and the miracle drug naltrexone, I am finally rid of the temptation to drink.*

Ria Health is a life-changer. I have done AA, and four or five stays at rehab and IOPs that really didn’t help at all. With Ria Health, after less than one year, I don’t even think about drinking anymore. This was the best money I have ever spent on dealing with alcohol addiction!*
