Welcome to Moderate Drinking

This web app is for people who want to change their drinking by moderating or cutting back. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in a randomized clinical trial funded by NIH/NIAAA. It is also listed on SAMHSA's National Register of Evidence-based Programs and Practices.

  • What is moderate drinking? Here is a description.
  • Is moderate drinking for everyone? The short answer is no. There are many reasons to consider abstaining if you’re considering a change in your drinking.
  • What might your chances of success be if you tried to moderate your drinking? Take a quick questionnaire and get objective feedback. The feedback will not label you or tell you what to do though. That is entirely up to you.
  • If you're unsure whether or not to change your drinking, consider our Drinker's Check-up. There you can take a good look at your drinking and get objective feedback. Then you can decide whether or not to change your drinking.
