Steps to treatment

How online alcohol therapy works

  • Match with a specialized therapist

    You’ll be matched with a licensed therapist and physician to guide you throughout your treatment plan. You will meet with your therapist on a weekly or biweekly basis depending on your plan.

  • Set goals and create a treatment plan

    You’ll work with your therapist to align on what success means to you, whether that’s sobriety or moderation. Your therapist will build a curriculum of therapy sessions designed to meaningfully reduce your alcohol consumption.

Alcohol Recovery Timeline: What To Expect

Unlike in other counseling programs and online rehabs, the therapists on our platform have direct experience treating alcohol use disorder. Monument works with licensed mental health counselors and licensed clinical social workers to get you the specialized care you deserve. They’ve dedicated their careers to helping people change their lives through alcohol treatment programs. Every treatment provider has been vetted and background checked, has years of relevant mental health experience treating substance use disorders (like alcohol use disorder), and is proficient in cognitive behavioral therapy, contingency management, and motivational interviewing.

Therapy plans at Monument are designed to produce real results aligned with your sobriety or moderation goals. Your counseling sessions won’t begin with ‘tell me how you’re feeling.’ Your treatment provider will offer structure, guidance, and support to help you reduce your alcohol consumption. Additionally, life doesn’t have to stop to make progress. Unlike inpatient rehab or in-person meetings, therapy takes place entirely online, and on your own time.

Monument’s treatment program is unique in that we connect you to evidence-based care entirely online. Unlike other treatment options, Monument treatment plans are led by expert clinicians, and designed to support goals for sobriety or moderation. Monument uses the gold-standard in treatment modalities for alcohol use disorder, including online therapy, medication, and peer support. If a clinician believes their patient is at risk for alcohol withdrawal due to physical alcohol dependence, they will refer them to a detox treatment facility for in-person supervision. If you believe you are currently experiencing alcohol withdrawal symptoms, please visit your local emergency department, and call 911 in case of a medical emergency.

Yes! Therapy empowers long-lasting behavioral change and improves overall mental wellbeing. While medications such as naltrexone and disulfiram are effective evidence-based tools, it’s beneficial to also address the psychological and social influences on your relationship with alcohol through online therapy. Engaging in multiple treatment options provides additional accountability and support throughout the sobriety or moderation journey.
