Gaithersburg, MD (PRWEB) December 29, 2009 -- National Institute For Alcohol Recovery (NIFAR®) is introducing a new version of its highly acclaimed Restore® program, which provides immediate support and practical advice to family members of alcohol addicts. The updated, digital format is now available online via high-speed streaming audio and downloads for an iPod® or mp3 player. This convenient new format gives loved ones instant support, anytime or anywhere.

Millions of people worldwide experience turmoil while living with a problem drinker. Daily interaction with an alcoholic can be overwhelming and takes a dramatic toll on one’s emotions, finances, health, and even safety. In fact, alcohol has been a factor in marital violence caused by 57% of men and 27% of women(1). Further, people who abuse alcohol are about twice as likely to be divorced than those who do not(2). Restore helps loved ones see things clearly while it provides specific action plans to promote positive change.

Dr. Thomas Goldbaum, board-certified cardiologist and member of the NIFAR medical advisory board stated, “Traditionally, physicians have had few recovery options to recommend without sacrificing patient privacy. I believe Restore is a highly beneficial program. Now, we can quickly refer it to family members for instant support in total privacy,” said Goldbaum.

The Restore re-launch comes at a critical time. Alcohol addiction is now the number one health problem in the US and in more than forty countries worldwide(3,4). Further, untreated addiction costs the US $400 billion a year – which is six times the cost of treating heart disease and diabetes, and four times the cost of treating cancer(5).

However, Restore is reducing this social and economic impact by helping family members support the alcoholic in recovery. Further, NIFAR offers a breakthrough recovery program called Regenerate®. This breakthrough self-help and coaching program is based on the latest research of neuroplasticity – the retraining of the brain to reverse alcohol addiction.

The NIFAR website has also been completely redesigned to be a comprehensive center for alcohol education, recovery, and support. Nifar.com is an invaluable resource for alcoholics, as well as schools, hospitals, and churches that seek to aid problem drinkers and support alcohol education. To learn more, please visit www.nifar.com. Or contact Kamran Loghman, Executive Director, at 301.216.2220.

About Restore®

This breakthrough self-help and coaching program is a first-of-its-kind in family support for alcoholics. The program may be used as a stand-alone solution or as a complement to psychotherapy or 12 step meetings. All accompanying materials are professionally produced, straightforward, and easy to use – which effectively empowers those suffering with a problem drinker to overcome desperation and chaos.
