Q. Does ReNova really work, I have always heard an alcoholic has to stop drinking altogether?

A. Yes, ReNova really works to reduce alcohol use dramatically, down to normal social drinking levels, and improve psychological health at the same time.

Q. Is ReNova the same as the Sinclair Method?

A. Not at all. While the Sinclair Method (importantly) proved persons with Alcohol Use Disorder could drink within normal limits, most are forced to stop using it, because they experience side effects they find intolerable (migraine headaches, emotional and sexual dysphoria, severe nausea, insomnia). ReNova has only one reported side effect: mild nausea.  This  occurs in approximately 1:3 clients and lasts about one week. It is easily controlled by food or use of anti-nausea over the counter medication. 

Q. I have heard that the Sinclair Method can take months to really work, what about ReNova?

A. ReNova begins to act quickly and full results are seen in the same time frame that many are just begin to see early results from the Sinclair Method.

Q. How was ReNova discovered? 

A. ReNova itself is not a discovery, but is instead an evolution, based on many other discoveries combined into a single protocol. The effect of the combination proved to be synergistic. This led to the ability to treat Alcohol Use Disorder while still drinking, but with in safe limits. 

Q. I know many people go back to rehab several times before they 'get it' how often do people go through ReNova?

A. Once. Because when the skills that make ReNova so effective are mastered, they can be independently used for a lifetime. 

Q. Does ReNova work equally well for men and women and people with different ages or drinking patterns? 

A. Yes. 

Q. Does ReNova last?

A. Two year follow up with clients show that ReNova has an enduring effect and clients are still using the skills they gained to control their drinking. 

Q. Is anyone a good candidate for ReNova?

A. No. Persons with a diagnosis of Bi-polar Disorder or Schizophrenia should not attempt ReNova. ReNova should not be tried by persons with severe heart, liver or kidney disease. Persons who have undergone Intestinal Bypass surgery and persons over the age of 45 who begin drinking early in the day have shown a lesser effect from ReNova. Persons who tend to become physically violent under the influence of alcohol are not good candidates.

Q. Is ReNova an inpatient alcoholism treatment program?

A. No, ReNova is a training program that is done on a strictly private, one on one, outpatient basis. 

Q. I (or my loved one) don't like talking about problems and personal issues, so how could this work?

A. ReNova is training program in which persons are taught an effective method to solve their own problems and that includes alcohol and psychological issues. In-depth discussion of  issues isn't required for success. 

Q. Do clients experience withdrawal symptoms?

A. No. ReNova reduces alcohol use at a pace that prevents withdrawal syndrome, while still fast enough to encourage continued effort. 

Q. Does ReNova work for drug abuse as well?

A. ReNova is a reduction program and for ethical and legal reasons cannot be used for drug abuse. Persons who experience co-occurring alcohol and drug abuse can be helped to abstain from other substances.

Q. Is ReNova expensive?

A. No. ReNova's price point is directly in line with several standard outpatient alcoholism treatment programs in your area.
