Stopping Overshopping Text Messaging Program

The Text Messaging Program is an affordable method of shopping addiction treatment, and it is available anywhere, anytime. Our program is the first interactive text messaging program to help people stop overshopping and overspending.

Text messaging programs have been shown to help people with smoking cessation, cut down on their use of alcohol, and ameliorate other impulsive and compulsive behaviors.

When your client begins the program, (s)he will answer a series of questions that allow us to personalize the text messages that you receive. This ensures that we send him/her messages that will specifically help him/her in the areas that your client struggles most. Your client will receive texts that are informational, directive, benefit-oriented, motivational, and inspirational.
