If you want to take charge of how much you drink, or when you drink, Saying When is a successful program that provides step-by-step directions that can help.
You could be interested in quitting drinking or just cutting down and the simple action of tracking your drinking and your urges to drink can help you get it under control.
The Saying When app was designed and developed by the Education department at The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Canada’s leading addictions and mental health hospital. The program itself has been used with great success for over 20 years, and is now finally available in a mobile format. You can make it work for you.
With Saying When, you can get help and keep your concerns about your drinking private. There’s no need to attend meetings or open up in front of a group. It’s a self-help approach that truly is anonymous and can positively influence your health, your job, or your relationships.
A PROGRAM THAT WORKS
Based on research and evaluation of various treatment methods for patients with alcohol problems Saying When is a self-help program that has a proven track record. The same tools that successful people have consistently used to bring their drinking under control for over 20 years are used in this mobile version.
Answer a few quick questions to set your baseline for success. Understanding when and why you drink will help you know when to “say when.” And if you ever think you can’t do it alone and need more support, links to resources are available.
You set your own goals to fit your lifestyle. We’ll provide you with plenty of Tips for Success that will help you in your journey.
Your personal dashboard will let you know just how you are doing. From here you can track when you have a drink or an urge to drink and you can view your daily stats, monitor your progress and see how you’ve been handling things since you started Saying When.
This tool is not meant for people with serious drinking problems but it does provide links to reputable sources that can provide additional help if it is needed.
If you—or someone you care about—are having problems related to drinking, Saying When can help.
