We live in a day and age that is dominated by smartphones, with apps available covering most aspects of daily life from organizing an Uber or ordering from Deliveroo. The world of addiction is no different and there are now some extremely useful – and often free - apps that can be significantly beneficial to someone in recovery after leaving rehab.

Here we take a closer look at some of the apps available to someone looking to expand their support network to motivate them in sobriety:

Addicaid

This is an app that has been designed for people on their recovery journeys from all types of addiction including alcoholism, drugs, sex and even work. Addicaid features an integral directory of 12-step groups and their alternatives so that users have easy access to support in their area. The app can also be used to check-in to meetings or chat with other users who are also in recovery, which allows someone to get real-time support in real life situations.

Pear reSET

This app is from Pear Therapeutics and is approved by the FDA. Because Pear reSET has been medically approved, it is only available to people over the age of 17 who are taking prescribed medications. The app assists therapy with a structured 12-week program which includes weekly check-ins to monitor progress.

Sober Grid

Sober Grid is a kind of social network for people with addiction issues who are in recovery. It allows users to create an online profile and engage with others, with a facility to create check-ins anonymously on how the user is feeling or if they are struggling to cope. This app offers daily engagement that is just as compelling as Twitter or Facebook but exists within the very specialist space of addiction recovery. This community feel makes this free app an extremely valuable support mechanism to assist in maintaining sobriety.
