Gaithersburg, MD (PRWEB) December 29, 2009 -- National Institute For Alcohol Recovery (NIFAR®) has completely redesigned its website to serve more effectively millions of people suffering from alcohol abuse worldwide. Nifar.com is now a comprehensive resource, offering the latest information on, and unique programs for, alcohol recovery, support, and education. The new site is an invaluable resource for alcoholics, as well as schools, hospitals, and churches that seek to aid problem drinkers and support alcohol education.
The Regenerate® program is the hallmark of Nifar.com. Since 2005, this multi-disciplinary tool has helped thousands of people recover in total privacy. NIFAR is launching the next generation of Regenerate® in time for New Year’s resolutions. The updated, digital format is now available via high-speed streaming audio and downloads for an iPod® or mp3 player. This provides problem drinkers with immediate, private recovery – anytime or anywhere – which is unprecedented in alcohol recovery.
Dr. Thomas Goldbaum is a board-certified cardiologist, and member of the NIFAR medical advisory board. “Traditionally, physicians have had few recovery options to recommend without sacrificing patient privacy”, said Goldbaum. “I believe Regenerate is a highly beneficial program. Now, we can quickly refer it to patients to begin immediate recovery in total privacy”, he said.
The startling fact is: 82% of doctors admit they avoid addressing alcohol dependency with their patients(1). Hence, Nifar.com is an invaluable resource for patients and family members alike who desperately seek help. Beyond Regenerate, the NIFAR website also provides a family support program called Restore® which helps loved ones support the addict and cope with the challenges of recovery. NIFAR also offers a fun and informative Youth Awareness program that gives teens vital information to make smart decisions.
The re-launch of Nifar.com comes at a critical time. Alcohol addiction is now the number one health problem in the US and in more than forty countries worldwide(2,3). 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(4). However, NIFAR is reducing this social and economic impact by transforming the lives of thousands of people with its dynamic programs.

This breakthrough self-help and coaching program is designed to combat alcohol addiction from many angles and promote recovery. The approach is multi-disciplinary, integrating proven recovery techniques from the latest research in addiction science, motivational coaching, and alternative medicine. The hallmark of Regenerate is neuroplasticity – a retraining of the brain to reverse alcohol addiction. It may be used as a stand-alone solution or as a complement to current treatment plans such as rehabilitation, psychotherapy, or 12 step meetings to enhance success. All accompanying materials are professionally produced, straightforward, and easy to use – enabling many who are suffering with alcohol addiction to seek sobriety, often for the first time.
