How it works:
vorvida® is an online program that can be accessed 24/7 on any device. It uses artificial intelligence to interact with you like a live therapist, asking you questions and analyzing your responses to provide customized feedback and strategies to help you manage your drinking behaviors.

Target patient population:
Individuals who would like to reduce their alcohol use and manage their drinking behavior.
What to expect:
Using cognitive behavioral therapy-based techniques, vorvida helps users develop self-awareness and skills to drink less alcohol.

Indications for use:
vorvida® is intended to provide methods and exercises based on evidence-based approaches for individuals who would like to reduce their alcohol use to help them manage their drinking behavior. vorvida® is intended as a self-application supplement to care-as-usual for individuals 18 years of age or older. vorvida® can be used for a period of 180 days. vorvida® is neither intended to replace treatment provided by a health care provider nor does it provide specific medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
In problematic alcohol users, vorvida® significantly reduced daily alcohol consumption, binge drinking and drunkenness when compared to the care-as-usual control group at 3 and 6 months. Additionally, vorvida® users reported high program satisfaction.
Once registered, users will have access to vorvida® for 180 days. vorvida® guides users through the program in a dynamic dialog and no special computer skills are required. vorvida® provides an overview of the program, after which the individual begins working and learning with vorvida®, completing the modules as directed by the program.
The program will track progress and continue to guide the individual through the modules. Each module informs the user when the session is completed. All information entered is private to the user.
Experience has shown that vorvida® should ideally be used 1-2 times a week for at least half an hour.
Risks & warnings:
Existing medication and/or treatments must never be changed without consulting the physician/psychotherapist beforehand. You should contact your doctor or psychotherapist if your mood or condition does not improve for a prolonged period of time (several days/weeks) or becomes suddenly worse.
Suicidal thoughts or thoughts of hurting yourself could be symptoms of depression. If you experience these thoughts more often, we urgently advise you to visit your physician or psychotherapist.
It is possible that not everyone will benefit from using this program, which may trigger feelings of disappointment. In case of health concerns, please consult your healthcare provider. If working with the program becomes too upsetting, you should take a break, stop using the program and talk to your physician/psychotherapist about this.
Not every exercise or every recommendation is equally suitable for each user. If an exercise or recommendation proves difficult for you to do, makes you feel uncomfortable, or causes/exacerbates complaints, do not continue this exercise. If necessary, you should speak to your physician/psychotherapist.
