Exploring Our Relationship With Alcohol During Stressful Times

Many factors may make us more likely to drink alcohol during a crisis. Anxiety, isolation and stress are all common during this time of COVID-19. And unfortunately, science has shown us that one of the most powerful triggers for substance use is stress.

Tempest is the first and only virtual recovery program that provides effective, engaging, holistic and lifelong care to anyone who wants to change their relationship with alcohol. Tempest was founded by Holly Whitaker, author of the New York Times best-seller book~Quit Like a Woman.~Tempest’s brand has changed the narrative around a normally stigmatized life event resulting in extensive press coverage when Chrissy Teigen posted on Instagram how the Tempest approach helped her to get sober, along with numerous news features such as on Today, GMA, and Vogue.
