Healing takes time
There is no "quick fix" for treating AUD. Neuroscience shows us that the brain takes longer than 100 days to heal, yet typical detox and rehab stays are only 5-30 days, with high relapse rates and no aftercare. With North-Star Care, you can receive treatment for as long as you need.
AUD is an overlooked epidemic
What is AUD?
Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is a chronic relapsing brain disorder characterized by an impaired ability to stop or control alcohol use despite adverse social, occupational, or health consequences.
29% lifetime prevalence in the US
29% of all people in the US meet criteria for AUD at some time during their life.
< 1% of people receive adequate treatment
Less than one percent of people receive medication treatment for AUD. Most receive limited services or support groups only.
The problem is growing
Over the past year, online alcohol sales have increased by 262%. It is expected that these numbers will continue to rise.
Most people do not know that alcohol increases cancer risk
Moderate and heavy alcohol use can lead to increased cancer risk; twice the risk of breast cancer and liver cancer, and five times the risk of esophageal cancer.

The difference between AUD and cancer treatment.
In AUD treatment, unlike other chronic diseases, all you receive is peer support and counseling.
