The Best Sobriety Apps to Aid in Your Recovery

After your detox and heroin addiction treatment, you are now ready to reenter the real world on your own. While you should have received the tools in treatment necessary to help you with this change, early recovery can still be overwhelming. To help you with the process, we have a list of the best sobriety apps to keep you on track and keep your sobriety in check. 

Top Apps for Sobriety Apps for Addiction Recovery & Your Sobriety Journey

Nowadays, your phone goes with you everywhere, and there is an app for everything. From counting calories to indicating the best time to run to the bathroom during a movie, phone apps are programmed to help with just about anything. Instead of clogging your phone screen with weird and unusual applications that you never use, try these sobriety apps to aid in your addiction recovery journey. 

I Am Sober 

Cost: Free with in-app purchases 

App Store Rating: 4.8 

Google Play Rating: 4.8 

 I Am Sober is a free sobriety app that helps users track their journeys. Along with counting the days you’ve been abstinent from drugs and alcohol and marking milestones, this sobriety counter app also allows you to make daily pledges to keep you motivated. You can log your days and note the highs and lows with each. There is even timeline information to help you understand what withdrawal symptoms can occur during drug detox and prepare you for what is to come. I Am Sober is available for both iOS and Android devices.1 

Sober Time 

Cost: Free with in-app purchases

Another popular sobriety calculator app, Sober Time, gives you daily motivational messages as well as access to a community of people going through similar struggles as you. You can even share your progress and track the amount of money you have saved since becoming sober.2 

Sober Grid 

Cost: Free with in-app purchases 

App Store Rating: 4.9  

Google Play Rating: 4.1  

Sober Grid represents itself as a social network designed specifically for those who are in recovery. Many people in early recovery may find themselves struggling to find friends who are also sober outside of those they may have met at their PHP or another treatment program. With this app, users can connect with other people in their area who are in recovery and also using the app. There is also an SOS button that will alert people if you feel that your sobriety is at stake and you need immediate support.3 

Nomo Sobriety Clock 

Cost: Free but contains ads 

App Store Rating: 4.8 

Google Play Rating: 4.5  

Nomo is an app designed by someone who is also in recovery. Unlike other sobriety apps, this app for tracking sobriety can also be used to track other unhealthy habits. This setup allows you to be honest about your recovery and focus on personal growth. The app also offers mini activities to help you focus your attention elsewhere when you feel that you may relapse.4 

AA Speakers To Go: 

Rather than a sobriety tracker app like the others we’ve mentioned, AA Speakers To Go is a database of over 400 audio recordings of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) speakers. This addiction app also offers in-app purchases to grant users access to specialty workshops and presentations.  

Cost: Free with in-app purchases 

App Store Rating: 4.8  

Google Play Rating: 4.7 

Substance Abuse Help at BHOPB 

While some of these addiction recovery apps may have been made by addiction experts or specialists, sometimes an app isn’t enough. Especially for people who have mental health issues alongside their substance abuse problems, an app may only be able to take you so far.   

For many people, in-person help and support are still a necessary component of long-term sobriety. Do not rely solely on these apps for your recovery, but instead use them as another tool to aid in the recovery process. If you are looking for more support, our dual diagnosis rehab in Florida may be a good option. 

If you are struggling with your behavioral health, you may need professional treatment to see real progress. Our BHOPB detox center works with people who are struggling with various substance abuse and mental health problems.
