Alcohol is a factor in more than 200 disease and injury conditions. Worldwide, 3 million deaths every year result from harmful use of alcohol.

Sadly, 90% of individuals with Alcohol Use Disorder will never receive the treatment they need. For too long, alcohol and substance misuse have been viewed as behavioral or moral failings, when in reality they are medical disorders that deserve comprehensive medical care.

That's where we come in. Visit www.northstarcare.com to learn about our revolutionary program, and how are achieving 94.3% success rates in treatment.

Sure, Italy is known for its abundant art, culture, and architectural offerings, but our personal favorites tend to be of the culinary variety: pasta, gelato, and delicious beverages. Here's a non-alcoholic take on one of our absolute favorites, The Saronno. We find this amaretto sour inspired concoction perfect to snuggle up with next to a fireplace on a chilly winter night!

1½ ounces alcohol-free amaretto (Lyre's Spirit Co is a great choice)
1 ounce alcohol-free bourbon (Spiritless's Kentucky 74 is our go-to)
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon simple syrup
½ ounce egg white, beaten
Lemon slice or twist, for garnish
Maraschino cherries (Luxardo are our favorite)

Combine the N/A amaretto, N/A bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white in a cocktail shaker and shake without ice, about 10 seconds.
Strain over fresh ice in an old-fashioned glass.
Garnish with the lemon peel and brandied cherries.

TIP
To make a delicious simple syrup, heat 1 cup sugar in ½ cup water in a pot over low heat until dissolved. Cool to room temperature before using and refrigerate after use.

"It’s hard to find companies that are innovating and getting real results in the field of addiction. Addiction is not a new crisis, and past approaches have been extremely expensive and massively ineffective. I'm excited to see the influence NorthStar Care can have on the future of patient care.” - Tony Robbins

Shame and blame have prevented far too many people—for far too long—from seeking the help they need for alcohol use disorder. It’s time technology and compassion joined forces to create stigma-free treatment that works, plain and simple.

Visit www.northstarcare.com to change your relationship with alcohol—for good.

It’s time fora change. The last time alcohol treatment evolved, telephones looked like this and phone numbers started with letters. In over a century, everything around us has changed as our understanding of science and technology has grown. Everything but treatment – with it’s 13% success rat...

Even better, we can turn that hope into reality by equipping you with the medication, nutrients, tools, and support you need to live life on your own terms - all from the comfort of your home.

"Throughout most of my life, alcohol was present. I experimented with it in my early teens, drank on weekends in high school and college, and used alcohol to unwind from workdays in the financial district. I also started to consume it more heavily when I began playing music with bands and spending more time in nightclubs.

Early on, I experienced some negative repercussions from my alcohol use, but was so young that the consequences were not that serious. And alcohol “worked” for me. I liked how it made me feel – it helped me celebrate my victories, mourn my losses, and mask trauma in all its forms. And then it stopped working. My drinking was no longer magnanimous and my misuse of alcohol started to create problems in my family life, my work life, and in all forms of my relationships. People who cared about me began to worry about me. I was concerned, so I sought out help and treatment. And that was one of the most courageous steps I have ever taken.

Finding treatment 20 years ago was challenging, as the prevailing model then (and still mostly today), was that total abstinence was the only goal worthy of support and treatment. For several years I would bounce in and out of one treatment center or support group to another, never really feeling that I was getting what I needed or wanted out of them. When I finally made peace with my relationship with alcohol, I came to understand that it was, in part, the cumulative help of a few dedicated professionals scattered throughout my treatment history. Most importantly, it was the peers I met, with their lived experience, who shared their own experiences and listened to me with compassion and without judgement that had a meaningful and positive impact on me. The combination of dedicated professionals and empathetic peers was what helped me find what my recovery looked like and what worked best for me. It was a revelation that would lead me to a broader purpose in my life.

This revelation grew to become my life’s biggest passion and I returned to school and became a certified Community Health Worker and trained peer specialist who believes that all individuals and their families who are affected by AUD deserve support and treatment. With close to 46 million Americans alone suffering from AUD, it is time to make leading edge, comprehensive, compassionate, and personalized treatment accessible and affordable to everyone. And this led me to NorthStar Care.

I was drawn to work at NorthStar Care by their innovative approach to treatment and their successful solutions. Guided by science-driven data, technology, nutrition support, 24/7 care, and uncompromising empathy and compassion, they strive to meet people where they are in their recovery and support them to develop a personalized path to well-being that works best for them. Working at NorthStar Care on a team that is dedicated and highly experienced and with a proven track record of success is my North Star." - Matt Delaney

Drink substitution therapy allows people in recovery to engage in the ritual of making, ordering, or opening a drink, regardless of alcohol content. This simple act signals the brain to release dopamine, a chemical that allows us to feel pleasure.

There are hundreds of amazing mocktail recipes out there, like this Ruby Garden Paloma - perfect for holidays! More to come. Cheers to that!

- 1 ½ oz alcohol-free silver tequila (like Lyre's Agave Blanco Spirit)
- 2-3 oz grapefruit juice
- 1 oz lime juice
- 1 oz simple syrup
- Rosemary sprigs (halved)
- Grapefruit slice
- Ice
- Grapefruit soda (optional)

1. Add 1.5 oz alcohol-free silver tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, simple syrup, and half of rosemary to a cocktail shaker.
2. Add a handful of ice and shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds until frothy and very cool.
3. Pour the Paloma into your prepared glass over ice, and top up with grapefruit soda if desired. Garnish with rosemary, a slice of lime, or grapefruit. Enjoy!

"My family has felt the sting of loss and grief that comes with loved ones who are suffering from addiction. NorthStar Care’s treatment, built upon science, technology and especially compassion, is the program for those still struggling. It is truly incredible to witness the transformation of a loved one; watching them succeed when they didn’t believe they could. My goal is to bring hope to those who have not won their own individual battle. Treatment for those suffering from addiction should be compassionate, stigma-free, and give patients a voice. Family support and education is vital and it is one of the many reasons why I am honored to be a part of the NorthStar Care team. Reuniting families is my North Star." - Betsy Moran

One size doesn’t fit all—and neither does a 12-step program. Substance use disorders are medical conditions that deserve a solution rooted in science. At NorthStar Care, support groups are part of treatment, but not the entire treatment. Our comprehensive care model includes important components such as medication, nutrition repletion, and a care team comprised of a physician, nurse practitioner, nurse, peer guide, and care navigator.

"I started drinking when I was very young and by the age of 14, I was sent to my first inpatient treatment center. By the age of 23, I had already spent over a year combined in one treatment center or another. I was fortunate and eventually found my path of freedom from alcohol.

My absolute biggest passion in life is providing any amount of comfort to those affected by Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). With nearly 46 million Americans now suffering from AUD, it is time that we come together to help as many people as we possibly can and provide treatment that actually works. Being a part of a successful solution has driven me to join the NorthStar Care team.

What drew me to NorthStar Care is the focus on compassion, science, and technology. NorthStar Care's innovative approach to treatment increases access to care and provides outstanding results. Being a part of a team dedicated to the stigma-free treatment for people suffering with AUD, and their families, is my North Star. I’m so grateful to have found it." - Louis Pompeo

Did you know that 22% of all suicides in the United States involve alcohol intoxication at or above the legal limit? As we recognize World Mental Health Day, the role of alcohol and substance use in well-being cannot be ignored. Over the last decade, we have seen a major shift in the conversation around mental health, and seeking help has become far less stigmatized. We must do the same for addiction.

If you or someone you love is struggling with alcohol, you’re not alone. At least 50% of the population has a genetic predisposition to develop Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) in their lifetime. Visit www.northstarcare.com to learn about how you can receive the highly effective, evidence-based care you deserve without leaving your home, family, or work behind. Ready to change your relationship with alcohol? We can help.

Last week, NorthStar Care’s Cofounder and CEO, Amanda Wilson, MD, shared a compassionate, paradigm-shifting message of hope for people with alcohol use disorder (AUD) at the Forbes Iconoclast Impact gathering, alongside our friend and partner Tony Robins. Dr. Wilson initiated a powerful conversation about the future of patient care and the need to remove the stigma and barriers from treatment.

We are grateful to Forbes for inviting us to open a dialog about how people with AUD can get help on their own terms, from their own homes, without disrupting their lives—and how our virtual, science-powered solution offer 600% better outcomes than traditional rehab.

In 1935, AA was formed. We all know what that stands for – Alcoholics Anonymous. Unfortunately, AA is not anonymous. Introducing yourself as “My name is Mary and I’m an Alcoholic” does not mean that the person sitting next to you does not recognize you as their son’s English teacher. There is no anonymity and little privacy.

North-Star Care offers not only uncompromising empathy, but a way for you to maintain your right to privacy in the treatment of your health care. Peer Support in Virtual Reality allows our patients to attend “group” meetings in complete privacy.

Using advanced technologies including Virtual Reality (VR), Telehealth, data science, and genetics, North-Star Care provides a completely private home treatment experience for patients suffering with Alcohol Use Disorder. Our anonymous avatar-based VR peer groups empower people with similar experiences to connect in a truly open and authentic manner.
