Mobile Apps for Addiction Treatment Centers

Goals

To identify 3-7 mobile app solutions for addiction treatment centers to include a description, pricing, and user ratings for the purpose of helping a client develop an addiction treatment app.

  • On the App Store, My Sober Life has a rating of 4.9 out of 5.0 stars. On the Google Play Store, it has a rating of 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.

I Am Sober

  • The I Am Sober app was developed by I Am Sober LLC and helps people who are recovering from addiction connect with thousands of others who are going through the same thing at the same time.
  • The app tracks sober days, encourages daily pledges, calculates money saved by being sober, allows users to share their stories, tracks milestones, provides a withdrawal timeline, and is developing the ability for users to pair with support providers.
  • The basic cost of I Am Sober is free, but Sober Plus is $4.99 per month, $27.49 for six months, or $49.99 per year.
