Are You Worried That You Or Someone You Love Has A Problem With Alcohol?

Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is a chronic relapsing brain disease. Patients with AUD have difficulty controlling alcohol use despite significant consequences. In the US, 28 million people suffer from AUD; 10Xs more than the Opioid Use Disorder epidemic. Problems related to alcohol are on the rise post-COVID. In 2020, alcohol related deaths exceeded COVID-related deaths among 16- to 64-year-olds.

Science Over Stigma - Debunking the Myths of AUD

90% do not seek "traditional" treatment because it does not work.

AUD is a treatable medical condition and NorthStar Care can help.

87% are failed by "traditional" inpatient rehab.

At NorthStar Care, patients do not fail.

"Traditional" treatment forces you to leave your family and job.

You don't have to pause your life to get care, our treatment plan meets your individual needs.

For 90+ years we have defined AUD as a behavioral problem and a moral failing. Inaccurate beliefs have led to poorly designed, inaccessible treatment. It is time to stop blaming the patient when the actual problem is insufficient and ineffective treatment. It is time to bring compassionate, effective, medical treatment, and behavioral support into patient’s homes anonymously and securely.

Do You Know What AUD Is Costing You?

Alcohol use is more costly than you may realize. People rarely understand how much money is spent on alcohol alone. They are almost never aware of the down-stream costs of uncontrolled use.

  • Purchasing alcohol
  • Missed workdays
  • Legal fees (e.g. DUI)
  • Increased insurance premium
  • Increased Medical Expenses
  • Lost employment
  • Intoxicated shopping
  • Impact of poor credit
