The 411 on the Best Apps for Drug Addiction

The times are constantly changing and so is technology. People have smartphones now which are basically laptops, for all intents and purposes. We live in a digital world where you are connected with others in a very real way. Addiction is no exception. There are apps for drug addiction – who knew? 

Apps for drug addiction include fantastic features to combat triggers, for example. With the touch of a button (or the screen, rather) you can locate meetings or support. Mobil health apps are very popular, and sobriety apps are, indeed, very popular.

Apps for Drug Addiction

Below is a list of some of the best sobriety apps around. Some have been around for a bit while others are new.

One feature allows you to set check-in times for the app to check-in with you during the periods when you were most likely to use. The information is then sent to the people in your recovery circle via text message. Interestingly enough, there is a panic button you can press if you feel you need immediate help. You can also track your sober days in this application.

This app uses the GPS locator to show you a grid that displays other users who are nearby. You do have the option to remain anonymous, of course. You can find people on the grid regardless of your location – so no matter where you are, you have access to help.

Green lights indicate a “way to go” activity, yellow means “warning light” events, and red lights mean “acting out.” You have the option to email/text directly from the app to someone who is part of your support system. Of all the apps for drug addiction, this one gets some good reviews. This app encourages you to be engaged; set preferences, track your sobriety date, add treatment goals, daily devotionals, track triggers, and view the serenity prayer.

If you or a loved one needs help with drug or alcohol abuse, please don’t wait to get help. We can help you by reviewing your treatment options with you. Additionally, we can assess your needs and help you find the treatment center that best suits your needs.
