Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Moderation Management

Moderation Management is actively monitoring the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The news reports about this easily-transmitted illness are quite concerning, and we feel that a statement is necessary to clarify our plans going forward.

Compassion and Resilience

Before I found Moderation Management all I knew about getting help for my problem drinking was abstinence only programs, and that scared the bjeezus out of me. If I tried one of those and failed (i.e. had one drink), then there was no hope for me.

Moderation Muscles

My quest for new and better coping mechanisms to replace my drinking has led me to taking up regular exercise. It’s known to be mood-altering, so much so, that it’s one of the few proven treatments for anxiety and depression. I can’t help but see some similarity in my workouts and my moderation.
