What are the benefits of online alcohol treatment with Monument?
Changing your relationship with alcohol can be challenging, which is why we’re here to make it as seamless as possible.

We’ve created a judgement-free, secure and confidential place for you to make progress on your own terms.

Why should I try online alcohol treatment with Monument?
Changing your relationship with alcohol, whether that’s through sobriety or moderation, can bring about great benefits. It can improve your physical, mental, and social wellbeing, and give you more time and energy to dedicate to what brings you joy. Changing your relationship with alcohol is something to be proud of, and you don’t have to do it alone. Monument’s innovative platform gives you the tools to make meaningful changes on your own terms. You don’t need expensive rehab or to call yourself an ‘alcoholic’ to start building healthier habits.
What does it mean to be in alcohol recovery?
According to SAMHSA, recovery is "a process of change through which people improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential."1 At Monument, this looks like engaging with peers and/or an expert Care Team to change your relationship with alcohol, and live a healthier and happier life.
Can a person recover from alcohol dependence?
Yes, people with alcohol use disorder and alcohol dependence can change their habits and maintain lifelong abstinence or moderation. Alcohol dependence describes when an individual’s body and brain adapts to view alcohol as essential to survival, and is at risk of experiencing withdrawal symptoms if they quit alcohol cold turkey. With the right support, including supervised medical detox and online alcohol treatment, the body is able to restore its natural balance and no longer depend on alcohol for its basic functioning.
Is recovery the same as sobriety?
Sobriety and recovery are related terms but have slightly different meanings. Sobriety describes remaining abstinent from a substance, whereas recovery describes a journey of healing and change, often used in the context of a substance use disorder such as alcohol use disorder. Many folks who are sober also identify as “in recovery”, and many people do not. At Monument, we encourage you to use whatever labels and terms are most empowering for you, and leave the rest behind.
Can quitting alcohol cure anxiety?
Quitting alcohol can significantly reduce anxiety levels for many people, including ‘hangxiety’. This is largely because drinking alcohol can make anxiety worse. Drinking alcohol can cause a chemical imbalance in the brain and hyperactivity in the nervous system, leading to increased anxiety. Learning more about the connection between alcohol and anxiety can help illuminate the ways in which alcohol may be affecting your mental health, and how cutting back or quitting can provide relief. By cutting back on drinking you’re also less likely to experience alcohol-related shame and guilt, which in turn can reduce anxiety.
How much does alcohol rehab cost?
Traditional alcohol rehab programs can be particularly costly, with an average cost of $17,400 per month for private programs, and $5,700 per month for non-profit programs.2 These prices can quickly go up depending on the program and insurance options. Unlike traditional outpatient alcohol rehab, Monument provides care at costs competitive with mental health copays. By providing alcohol treatment entirely online, we can be flexible to your schedule and budget. Monument treatment plans start at $14.99/month plus an initial onboarding fee. You can explore our plans and pricing to learn more, and also check out your insurance coverage options.
How long is alcohol rehab?
Most traditional alcohol rehab programs are for 30, 60, or 90 days. Monument is not an outpatient or inpatient alcohol rehab program. Our online alcohol treatment is flexible to your needs and goals, and the duration of treatment is unique for every individual. While experts recommend most individuals engage with treatment for the first full year of their recovery journey, you can start or stop treatment at any time. You can also change up your treatment toolkit as your needs evolve. For example, many members start with weekly alcohol therapy, and reduce frequency to biweekly over time.
What is Monument?
Monument is the leading online alcohol treatment platform for anyone looking to cut back on drinking or stop altogether. Monument community members get access to an anonymous 24/7 forum to share updates throughout their journey, and free virtual support groups on topics related to alcohol dependence, moderated by a licensed therapist.
