WHAT IS MODERATION MANAGEMENT?

Moderation Management (MM) is a recovery program and national support group network for people who have made the healthy decision to reduce their drinking and make other positive lifestyle changes. MM empowers individuals to accept personal responsibility for choosing and maintaining their own recovery path, whether moderation or abstinence. MM promotes early self-recognition of risky drinking behavior, when moderation is an achievable recovery goal. Individuals who are not able to successfully reduce their drinking either find a local abstinence-only program to attend, or remain in MM and choose abstinence as their goal.

WHAT DOES MM OFFER?

  • A supportive mutual-help environment that encourages people who are concerned about their drinking to take action to cut back or quit drinking before drinking problems become severe.
  • A nine-step professionally reviewed program which provides information about alcohol, moderate drinking guidelines and limits, drink monitoring exercises, goal setting techniques, and self-management strategies. As a major part of the program, members also use the nine steps to find balance and moderation in many other areas of their lives, one small step at a time.
  • Books, workbooks, tapes, handouts, and charts help members track their progress and learn more about moderation as a recovery goal. Also see Suggested Reading List.
