About Us

We’re here to help you quit drinking and live alcohol free.

Changing your relationship with alcohol is a uniquely personal process—from the big realization that something needs to change, to the small, everyday habits that keep us on track. That’s why we created a recovery program that’s built around you.

Our Founder's Story

I built Tempest because it was the approach I needed when confronting my own dysfunctional relationship with alcohol.

By late 2012, I had been drinking problematically for years but delayed doing anything about it because I wasn’t sure if I fit the definition of an alcoholic and because I just didn't want to be an alcoholic. So I kept trying to drink "normally" until finally, my drinking was so bad I had no choice but to do something about it. My moment of clarity came when I realized alcohol was getting in the way of everything I wanted out of life.

It takes an average of 10 years for a person to get help for a substance use disorder, from the onset of their symptoms to when they seek treatment. Meanwhile, alcohol-related deaths have doubled in the last decade.

It shouldn’t take so long to get help.

Millions of people experience alcohol use disorder, but it often isn’t taken seriously until we hit “rock bottom.” Living in limbo between “It’s not that bad,” and “It’s not bad enough” is what can take us years before we seek help.

We don’t think you should have to wait. If you feel like alcohol is interfering with the way you want to live, that’s enough of a reason to make a change today.
