Recovery from alcohol use disorder takes a lot of strength and courage, but it also requires access to resources and support.
It is especially important to maintain that support network in order to achieve long-term recovery. It makes sense that we access that support via our smartphones — a device that we already use to stay connected.
To help you on your recovery journey, we’ve listed a range of iOS apps to help you, from sobriety counters to community-based groups and digital meeting apps. (You can check out Android apps in our blog, What are the Best Sobriety Apps for Android)
