Recovery Coaching Intensive Program
We Are Diabetes offers their Intensive Recovery Coaching as a package only. Why? Because lasting change takes time. By committing to multiple sessions and paying up front you are acknowledging your commitment to sustaining a healthy relationship with food and body.
- Eight weeks of commitment, support and inspiration.
- Three hours of live communication per week (phone or video chat).
- Weekly homework assignments.
- Daily check-ins via text or email (optional).
- Ongoing complimentary monthly "check-in" communication sessions for up to six months after program completion.
This program is for you if:
- You are actively working on recovering from ED-DMT1.
- You need more accountability and support on a weekly basis to continue to strengthening your commitment to full recovery
- You don't have a person who "gets it" that you can communicate with on a regular basis about all the intricacies that are part of the recovery process
- You need support and encouragement to commit to better self-care
- You have an endocrinologist or primary care MD that is managing your diabetes care*
- You see or are making an appointment to regularly see a mental health provider (Psychologist and/or Psychiatrist)*
* If you need assistance locating an endocrinologist and/or mental health provider, We Are Diabetes can assist with this prior to program start.
The Recovery Coaching Intensive Program requires its participants to agree to open communication between their treatment team and WAD in order to best work together on treatment goals.

The cost for this 8-week program is $800 (USD). Sessions will not begin until the program fee is paid, and sessions will stop if remaining payment is not made in full prior to the first scheduled session of week 4. This program is not covered by health insurance.
Weekly phone calls and/or video chat sessions must be scheduled at least a week (5 business days) ahead of time. For example: If you wish to schedule a session that falls on a Monday, you need to schedule that by the end of the day on the Monday the week before. We encourage participants to try to schedule all their sessions for the eight-week program as far in advance as possible to ensure we can accommodate your desired dates and times. The more notice you give, the better chance we have at accommodating your requests.
All 3 weekly sessions must be used within the weekly time frame. If you want to use all 3 sessions in week 1, you must schedule all 3 sessions ahead of time. Sessions will not be rolled over into future weeks. This means you cannot choose to have 1 session in week 1 and 5 sessions in week 2. Participants have 3 sessions that can be used each week, and once that week has passed, those sessions have expired and cannot be used at a future time.
Expectable Email Response Time:
Program participants have unlimited access to email and text between the hours of 9am and 5pm Central Time, with a guaranteed 24-hour response time. Any emails or texts sent after 5pm Central Time are considered "after-hours" and will be attended to the following day.
Weekly "homework" will be provided for each participant. These assignments/projects are part of the recovery process and are meant to be taken seriously. There is no penalty for not completing these, however continual missed/skipped assignments will inevitably stall progress.
Missing a scheduled live communication session is the decision of the participant. 24-hour notice is expected for canceling a planned session. There is no refund on the program cost if sessions are missed.
We Are Diabetes takes the privacy of our clients very seriously. Therefore, we will require all participants to use the VSee platform for all video chat sessions. This software offers encrypted communication and is much more secure than other video chat options available.
While we strive to go above and beyond in order to maintain strict confidentiality, we cannot guarantee full, 100% privacy during phone calls and/or video chat sessions.
We Are Diabetes uses HIPAA-compliant VSee video conferencing for video chat coaching sessions. The software is available for Windows, macOS and Linux. Mobile apps are also available for iOS and Android.
