1,018 studies funded by the National Institutes of Health over the past 44 years have produced six powerful self-control tools.

These tools show you how to cut down on your drinking without giving it up.

Unlike Alcoholics Anonymous, these tools will help you build healthy new drinking habits.

 You'll feel stronger and calmer.

 Life will get easier for you at   home and at work.

 You'll feel good about drinking again.

Here are the six tools and the skills you'll get from them:



How to create new drinking habits and make them stick.




How to resist urges to drink  with a special mind-focusing technique. 




How to refuse drinks politely, firmly and effectively.




How to make your life more fun so you just naturally drink less.




How to bounce back from drinking mistakes.




How to ask your loved ones for practical  help -- even if they've criticized you in the past.

I've taught these tools to people for 14 years.

I have a Ph.D. from The City University of New York and a B.A. from Yale University.

I teach at Mount Sinai Medical Center and am a guest addiction expert on SiriusXM's national Doctor Radio show.

Here's what doctors and other professionals say about me:

"When I want my patients to get excellent alcohol treatment, I send them to Dr. Edison.  I can't think of a stronger recommendation than that." 

-- Scott Shapiro, MD., Former Director of Psychiatry at St. Vincent's Catholic Medical Center's Infectious Disease Center and Founder of MilestonesNYC, a free treatment service for low-income New Yorkers.  

"Once Mark and I treated a problem-drinking family together, so I saw with my own eyes how he acts with patients.  He's not one of those stone-faced psychologists.  He asks questions, makes suggestions, gives encouragement. People really like that." 

-- Juliana Neiman, LMFT, LMHC, Staff Therapist at Hudson Guild and Private Practice, Manhattan.

"After Dr. Edison gave a guest talk in one of my graduate school classes, I hired him to teach a semester-long course on addiction.  Students said he's a attentive listener who doesn't judge them.  This is a key talent for psychologists and it's why I recommend him."

-- Denise Hien, Ph.D.,  ABPP, Professor of Psychology, Graduate Center of the City University of New York and Adjunct Research Scientist, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

"As a psychologist who runs a business, I know how difficult problem drinking can be among top executives.  When a friend who is the CEO of a global industrial firm asked for help with a key employee who was drinking too much, I referred him to Dr. Edison.  He approached the employee in a way no one had thought of before and solved the problem.  I recommend Dr. Edison without hesitation."

-- Richard Juman, Ph.D. President, Insight BusinessWorks, Inc.

"I met Mark Edison ten years ago when we worked together at Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital. His professional judgement is so good that I've asked him to teach in my substance abuse classes."

-- Susan Palmgren, Ph.D., Associate Clinical Director, Adult Outpatient Department, Department of Psychiatry, Harlem Hospital Center.

"As a divorce lawyer, I work with a lot of people who are upset because their marriages are coming apart. Dr. Edison helps me to calm them down by teaching me what to say. He's a big help!"

-- Stephanie Lehman, J.D., Partner and Head of Matrimonial Law Practice at Hartmann, Doherty, Rosa, Berman & Bulbulia, LLC.

"For a year I led a therapy group with Mark Edison, so I know for certain how warmly and kindly he acts with his patients. That hasn't changed since I met him a decade ago, so I often ask his advice when treating problem drinking."

-- Carole Srinivasan, Ph.D., Supervising Psychologist, Mount Sinai School of Medicine/Mount Sinai St. Luke's Hospital.

"Mark Edison acts a little like an old-fashioned country doctor. He'll come to your home or the hospital in an emergency and check later to see how you're doing. How many psychologists do that?"

-- Katya Frischer, M.D., Associate Psychiatry Residency Director, Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center and Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
