Sober Recovery App, plus lived addiction recovery experience

This week on Talk Recovery Radio

Sober.ly  is a mobile app that offers real time, stigma free support for sobriety in a fun and engaging environment. One of the founders is a person in long term recovery, and has drawn from personal life experience to create a unique setting for sobriety support.

When you sign into the app you create an avatar to represent you in the community. It doesn’t have to look like you, and that’s OK! In many social apps, people don’t feel comfortable sharing about their addiction, or use fake profiles in order to ease the fear of social or even career repercussions.

A sobriety tracker, daily check ins, and a community based daily inspiration feature are some of the additional functionality built into the app.

The Sober.ly “We Program” 

The Sober.ly team wanted to tackle one of the biggest barriers that people with substance abuse problems face; STIGMA! There is still today so much shame and stigma attached to addiction disorders that a huge segment of the population delays, or worse, never seeks help for their condition.
 
There are already massive social peer support networks in place for people seeking help along their journey of recovery such as Alcoholics Anonymous, and the countless other 12 step groups. They’re not however a cure all, and don’t work for everyone. Our society is more and more based around getting everything real time, and technology has made that more and more possible every day.

Followed by personal story with Patricia S,  a woman who lives in long term recovery from addiction.
