Recovery Cheat Sheet

At Self Recovery we believe in your potential to transform on your own. We empower people with a unique approach based on science that anyone can do from home.

This Cheat Sheet, created by Daniel Hochman, M.D., will help you quickly identify what you need to target to jumpstart recovery.

What does the 'Recovery Cheat Sheet' do?

Traditional guidance misses the mark:

We all know what healthy choices are (don’t drink too much, don’t use drugs, eat healthy, exercise)… nobody needs help with that. Most people try to force change by willpower to make those better choices. But that’s an old-fashioned model that requires endless motivation and works less than 20% of the time.

Understand how your behaviors really work:

Science has taught us a lot in the last few decades about addiction and how we actually change our behaviors. As a psychiatrist, I have put together a model that addresses the underlying psychology of bad habits. When you truly understand what drives your behaviors, you gain control and change becomes more natural.

“More than anything, you helped me feel like I am “okay.” You have a gift of setting me at ease with your warmth and accepting nature, but you back that up with the concepts you teach so I can actually let go of the shame I’ve carried forever.”

-Katie T

“I cannot recommend Self Recovery highly enough! It’s been a joy working through the program, and the results have been life-changingly positive.” 

-Jay M

“Dr. Hochman gets it! I’ve already been diagnosed with so many things before. All that did was name my illness. What Self Recovery did is help me finally understand how it developed, and give me exercises to retrain my brain to become the person I dreamed of. I can’t believe this happened actually.”

-Jacob K

You’re reading this letter right now because, like many, you’ve been dragged through the current of addiction. Some days it might feel like you’re breaking free, and other days like there’s no escape.

This is what happens when we don’t understand what drives illogical behavior.

If you want to break this cycle on a deeper level, you’ll love our movement.

At Self Recovery we see an outdated rehab industry that uses non-research based practices. Their success rates are below 20%, and this has created a world where addiction is seen as a difficult, lifelong disease. Most people can sense this, and that’s why only 1 in 10 people with an addiction seek out treatment.

That means out of 100 people with an addiction, an average of only 2 get better with traditional treatment!

This happens because most approaches are simplistic and look at the outside behavior alone. Let’s make it clear: this is NOT an issue of decision-making or morals. After working with thousands of individuals I’ve learned that while every situation is unique, everyone knows what a good decision looks like, and how to make them.

The two reasons addiction holds its grasp on so many people is that 1) people are afraid to come forward due to others shaming them, and 2) there aren’t enough research-based programs that address underlying issues to truly transform for life.

That's why we created the 'Recovery Cheat Sheet'

You can start real, lasting change privately, in the comfort of your home (or favorite toilet seat – we don’t judge 🙂

You will access an evidence-based model that’s easy to follow, and walks you through a combination of the most proven strategies for real change. For each part of the model, you’ll get questions to help you discover yourself, along with tips make sure you stay on the right track.

While you do this, you’ll also be learning what NOT to do so you stop wasting your time with strategies that don’t last.

Imagine not having to:

  • Spend time away from your family or leave work
  • Invest tens of thousands of dollars at a fancy rehab with an 80+% relapse rate
  • Submit yourself to public shame

…all while improving your lifestyle and ending addiction FOR GOOD.
