Who is it for

dopamine detox

Are you struggling with an addiction to alcohol, cannabis, pornography, or your phone? If you feel like you’ve tried everything and are ready for a change, a 30 Day Dopamine Detox challenge may be just what you need. Based on the work of Dr. Anna Lembke, psychiatrist at Stanford and author of “Dopamine Nation,” this program uses a 30-day period of abstention from your addictive substance to help you break free from addiction

What to Expect

Four Weeks. Complete Abstention. Find Replacements.

Abstaining from an addictive behavior for a period of four weeks can be a challenging, but ultimately rewarding experience. By cutting out the addictive substance or behavior, you may experience withdrawal symptoms and cravings, but with the support of buddies and a group, you can get through this difficult time. As you go through the detox process, you will also be finding healthy replacements for your addiction, such as engaging in new activities or hobbies, or finding new ways to cope with stress or negative emotions. You may notice improvements in your physical and mental health, as well as your relationships and overall well-being. By the end of the four weeks, you may have a newfound sense of control and freedom, and you may be better able to make healthier choices in the future. The support of others can provide valuable encouragement and accountability, helping you to stay on track and reach your goals.

This is so exciting and brilliant. It is pulling me out of my dire funk already. The feeling of support makes me motivated to do things (instead of not doing anything and worrying).

More Questions?

Who should not take this challenge?

It is not recommended to undergo a dopamine fast for individuals who are at risk of experiencing life-threatening withdrawal symptoms if they suddenly stop using substances such as alcohol, benzodiazepines, or opioids. This is particularly true in cases of severe dependence and withdrawal.

How is this different from a course?

GetMotivatedBuddies is a behavior based platform. It is designed to help you actually do things, rather than just watch people do things.  For each day choose your own times to take action, to fit it within your schedule, while still participating with others! 

Is this live or by video, audio, or something else?

This challenge is designed for you to simply check in daily with your Buddies and group. We provide additional information to help you make change.

What else does GetMotivatedBuddies offer?

GetMotivatedBuddies Challenges introduce you to ongoing behavior change. This is a holistic platform to help you improve in all areas of your life: Health & Fitness, Work, Learn and Life. When you join you have access not only to this challenge and members, but also to thousands of other Buddies, behavioral plans and challenges in other categories.

What if I can't make this challenge?

This will be a repeating challenge and you can join the next one.

Does it matter what timezone I'm in?

Anyone in any timezone can participate.
