“He would probably be insulted if he were called an alcoholic. This world is full of people like him. Some will moderate or stop altogether, and some will not. Of those who keep on, a good number will become true alcoholics after a while.”
~ Alcoholics Anonymous - The ‘Big Book’ Chapter 8 - To Wives
MM Friendly Therapists (http://www.moderation.org/therapists/therapist_finder.html): More and more therapists are starting to recognize the value of addressing drinking problems early, when moderation is still a viable option. Each of the therapists listed in this directory has agreed to describe themselves as ‘Moderation Friendly’.
ModerateDrinking.com is a subscription-based online program with greater structure than MM. Its effectiveness has been demonstrated in a randomized clinical trial. Monthly subscriptions are $24.95, annual $79 (or less than $7/month). Net proceeds go to Moderation Management.
MM Chat Room: Monday night's online meeting is a great way to ‘meet’ Members from around the world. Tuesday’s Book Chat covers one chapter from the book Responsible Drinking per week. Wednesdays are ‘Abs Chat’, which welcomes both permanent and temporary abstainers.
The Moderation Management Main List Listserv: The listserv has over one thousand subscribers, most of whom lurk, but dozens of whom post. It is high traffic - as many as 200 posts per day, but it remains the closest thing MM offers to 24/7 support. Many sage old-timers share their wisdom here. Our popular Listserv is one of the oldest services of it’s type.
