UK residential clinic Abbeycare have developed the ‘Alcohol Demotivator’ – an interactive online tool that helps users stop drinking alcohol, revealing the user’s personalised consequences of drinking, including health and financial effects.
Available on their website, by entering the details of how much alcohol they consume daily, users can immediately see the potential impact of their drinking, on areas of life such as finances, health, driving safety, and more. Results are personalised to the individual.
Intended as a demotivational tool, or deterrent, the tool can be used by those who are actively drinking alcohol at present, or by those looking to maintain long term abstinence.
Developed by their in-house web team, Abbeycare wanted to provide some real-world indication for alcohol users, of the impact their habit may have.
Abbeycare’s founder John McLean explains, “For those who need help, the spiral of addiction is a blurred experience – most will never realise the real consequences we present in the tool, such as exactly how much money someone will spend, how likely they are to succumb to liver damage, and many more risks. The tool seeks to remedy that….so it could be used as a deterrent, or a tool for intervention, in the right conditions.”
He continues, “Naturally, we realise there’s much more to the addiction recovery journey than tools such as this, but it’s a useful support to use as a reference point for many.”
The Alcohol Demotivator lays out units of intake, risk level, money spent on alcohol per month and for the next year, as well as risk of stroke, liver cirrhosis, and other health issues.
