AlcoholAnswers.org is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We strive to provide evidenced-based material for those seeking information on Alcohol Dependence (Alcoholism) and a sense of community through our Discussion Forums.
Treatment Options Overall treatment plans consist of three components: medical, psychosocial, and support from loved ones and people who have experienced alcohol dependence or abuse. Each patient will require a combination of resources to suit their individual treatment needs. These are not competing assets but complementary to one another. See Treatment Option Brochure.

Online Counseling

Online counseling is done both in a group setting and individual basis with a qualified therapist over the internet by email, chat, video, or a combination. This provides the patient with conveniences such as not having to travel, maintaining some form of anonymity and a window of accessibility. Body language and inflection and tone are lost on the strictly type/no voice sessions though, which can lead to misunderstandings. However, it is though patient are less embarrassed and can omit the "getting comfortable" stage. Optimally, online counseling would be used as an adjunct to traditional psychosocial therapy.
