We are excited to announce that Tempest has been acquired by Monument. This new chapter will ensure that Tempest will continue to serve our members and support our mission of putting people at the center of their recovery, now at an even larger scale.

Tempest and Monument will be integrating services down the road to create a singular platform with the most robust recovery toolkit available. Both organizations were built to provide clinically-backed tools for anyone looking to redefine their relationship with alcohol, and together, our offering will be more holistic and wide-reaching. Monument and Tempest share core values of integrity, confidentiality, and person-centric care, which will continue to guide this next chapter. 

As we work to thoughtfully integrate our two platforms, we’re sharing answers to some of the questions you might have about what this means for you, and how we will continue to support you throughout your journey. 

Q: Who is Monument?

A: Monument is a telemedicine platform for anyone looking to change their relationship with alcohol. Monument connects people to evidence-based tools including  peer support, behavioral therapy, and medication-assisted treatment. Mike Russell founded Monument based on his own sobriety journey, and is working to increase access to and affordability of the treatment that worked for him, and many others. The combination of Monument’s clinician-led care and Tempest’s powerful community and content will provide our members with even more services to empower them on their recovery journey. 

Q: Will Tempest and Monument’s services remain separate?

A: Tempest and Monument will eventually be integrating services to create a singular platform with the most robust recovery toolkit available at In the meantime, you can still sign up for Tempest’s monthly membership plan, or access the following evidence-based tools via Monument:

  • 53 free therapist-moderated support groups on a variety of topics
  • A free anonymous community forum 
  • Medication assisted treatment with care from a licensed physician 
  • Virtual therapy with a therapist specialized in treating substance use disorders 

Monument and Tempest members will be the first to know when the combined service becomes available. 

Q: Can I still purchase Tempest membership?

A: Yes! You can purchase a monthly subscription to Tempest on our plans and pricing page. 

Q: How can I learn more about joining Monument?

A: You can explore your Monument care options here. Monument provides out-of-pocket pricing that’s competitive with the cost of many mental health copays, and also accepts many major insurance providers, and HSA/FSA. You can check your insurance eligibility here

Q: What is Tempest’s stance on medication-assisted treatment?

A: At Tempest, we believe that whatever helps you get sober is a good thing. We encourage our members to explore all of the resources that are available to you, and engage with those that align with your needs, goals, and preferences. For some, that may include medication-assisted treatment, and for others, that may only include non-medical options. By partnering with Monument we’re able to offer even more tools, and empower more personalized care plans. 

Q: How will I know when Monument and Tempest services merge?

Tempest and Monument members will be the first to access the combined services. You can stay tuned by signing up for our newsletter (at the bottom of this page).
