Is Drynamics like AA?
Nope, Drynamics is not an addiction recovery program. It’s a group coaching program for people who do not feel addicted to alcohol but who are curious about their relationship with alcohol and want to see what life would feel like if they took a long break .
How much does Drynamics cost?
There are several commitment levels. Take a look at the options HERE.
Will other people know I’m in the program?
Drynamics is a group coaching program and the power of Drynamics is in the group! The meetings are held in private Zoom rooms and we will connect daily in our private FB group. Although your identity will not be shared outside of the group, you will not be anonymous either. There is no shame in doing something good for your health and the first step to owning your choice to decline drinking is to practice owning it with us.
Do people tend to drink after 3 months?
That depends on your intentions. Are you a daily drinker who is looking to eliminate alcohol from your life? Or are you someone who enjoys a few cocktails on the weekends and utilizing Drynamics as a challenge for your health? Are you truly ready to make big changes in your life or are you just needing a brief pause because life is kinda heavy right now?
Some people lose their desire to drink after 3 months in Drynamics and others don’t. Some people want to lose their desire to drink. Others aren’t ready for that…but they want to check it out. Whatever your ultimate intention, Drynamics will help get you closer.
What do I do in social drinking situations?
Though not an immediate concern, someday we will all socialize again. If you follow the Drynamics proven strategies, you’ll find out that most of our fears about sober socializing are completely unfounded. It quickly becomes very fun and easy to socialize without alcohol. Most people report craving alcohol for 2-10 minutes per week and we’ll give you support and strategies while you learn how to manage those first uncomfortable moments.
What is the time commitment?
Depending on the program you choose – the time commitment differs. The Deep Shift program is our signature program and it includes:
3- 1:1 goal setting meetings (30 min)
12-meditations, weekly (1 hour)
7- group meeting, bi-weekly (1-1.5 hours)
1 nutrition support meeting (2hours)
1 book club (1.5 hours)
Facebook group (daily engagement at your discretion)
Is this group therapy? Are you a therapist?
I’m not a therapist, I’m a coach. You can think of a therapist as someone who focuses on “why” problems have occurred where a coach focuses on “how” to help you make change. Although the roles of coaches and therapists do overlap in some ways they offer very distinct services. And for the record, your therapist will love that you’re doing Drynamics!
What are the meetings like, how much time do I get to talk?
The meetings are a chance to check in with our journal assignments, to prepare for upcoming sober obstacles, to share our triumphs, to ask questions. There will always be weekly themes but there is also plenty of time to talk and share about whatever else is on your mind.
How much time should I set apart outside of the meetings?
That depends on your level of engagement. If you opt to be part of the live group meetings, there will be journal prompts that can take a few minutes a day or up to a couple of a hours. This program is about growth and the more time you allow yourself, the more you will change. If you opt to be part of the Facebook group, we encourage you to engage daily and there are regular challenges that are fairly quick to complete.
Won’t I be craving alcohol all the time?
Nope! Participants feel so supported that they have reported craving alcohol for less than 10 minutes per week and mostly only during the first two weeks.
Okay, so 12 weeks, that’s a LONG time! What if I end up having a drink?
Listen, it happens. We set the best intentions, we feel totally supported and then somehow we end up having a drink anyways. Do not feel ashamed. You’re trying something new and you just don’t know exactly what kind of challenges you’re up against. If you do take a drink, you’ve just gotten a goldmine of information about your specific challenges around alcohol. Share that experience with the group and let’s utilize this information to bring you even more success moving forward. Whoever decided that cleaning up your relationship with alcohol requires a 100% success rate in just plain wrong and for some of us, that kind of pressure is enough to cause us to give up completely.
