Alcohol Management Program

What is the Alcohol Management Program?

The MHealthy Alcohol Management Program at the University of Michigan is a brief, confidential health education program that helps you cut back on your drinking or quit altogether. It's your choice, abstinence or moderation.

Who is the Alcohol Management Program for?

The Alcohol Management Program (AMP) is for people who could improve their health by drinking less alcohol or none at all. The AMP is for those with mild to moderate alcohol problems who want to eliminate the negative consequences of their drinking. The AMP is not for those who are severely dependent or alcoholic and require treatment services.

Alcohol affects your health in many different ways, especially when used in excess. Because it is easy to drink too much, sometimes unhealthy habits can develop. Did you know that if you cut down or stop drinking you can:

  • Feel better about yourself
  • Improve your sleep
  • Have more energy
  • Increase confidence and self-control
  • Reduce empty calories
  • Avoid impaired driving
  • Improve your overall health

If you have been wondering:

  • Whether you drink too much?
  • If your life would be better if you drank less?
  • Is my drinking considered risky drinking?
  • How your drinking may affect your health?
  • How much is too much?

The AMP might be right for you. Visit our Self-Evaluation to take a better look at alcohol and your health.
