The Drinker's Checkup
by Dr. Reid K. Hester, Ph.D.
Have you wondered about whether you should change your drinking? Get free, anonymous, objective and confidential help at the Drinker's Check-up.
This scientifically based program helps you take a detailed look at your drinking. It then gives you objective feedback about your drinking, comparing your drinking, consequences, risk factors, etc. to others. It finishes up with a section that helps you resolve your ambivalence about whether to change, set goals for changing, a plan for changing, and offers resources for helping you meet your goals. It takes 60-90 minutes (but you can do it in multiple sessions).
The Drinker's Check-up will not label you nor tell you what to do. What you decide to do about your drinking, if anything, is entirely up to you. If you do decide to change though, the
Check-up can help you decide how to change. It also will recommend resources to help you be successful in changing your drinking. Moderation Management is one such resource.
The initial evaluation for the Checkup is free. This is followed by a registration process, which costs $29. Users of this Drinker's Check-up web app are its sole support as we do not accept advertising or have other sources of support for it. We are so confident that that you will find this Check-up worth $29 that we offer a money back guarantee.
