Sobriety Apps

There are apps for everything these days, and sobriety is no exception. We’re living in an era where you can have your sober tools with you at any time. Perhaps you’re in a place where you can’t just pull out a big book. No matter, there’s an app for that! Maybe you have a few free minutes and want to center yourself with some spiritual literature. Now, you can do that right from your phone. Sobriety has never been so convenient.

1) 12 Steps AA Companion: $2.99

Platforms: iPhone, iPad, iPod touch; Android

This sobriety app allows you to access the big book at any time. It includes the first 164 pages of the Big Book and over 60 stories from the first and second editions. This is a great app to have for Big Book step meetings or impromptu meetings with your sponsor/sponsees. It also comes with a sobriety calculator that shows you how long you have been sober every time you open the app. If you can’t afford the $2.99, there are a couple of free versions (including Georgia Sobriety) but you won’t get the stories in the back, the sobriety calculator, and some of the other features.

2) Sponsor Support $0.99

Platforms: iPhone, iPad, iPod touch; Android

This sobriety app is designed so that you can get support anytime, anywhere. With a click of a button you can contact your sponsor via voice or email with a preprogramed message letting them know you need their assistance. It also has a success calendar to keep you focused and a daily journal. The sponsor support sobriety app also lets you keep your group and medical contacts organized and easy to reach.

3) Afternoon Affirmations: Free

Platforms: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad

There are plenty of recovery sites that will send a morning reflection text or email every day. This sobriety app sends you a message every day at one pm. If you are one of those people that sometimes forgets or doesn’t have time for a morning meditation, this app is for you. The content is a mix of spiritual quotations and practical reminders designed to calm you when the afternoon gets hectic.

4) One Health Meeting Finder

Platforms: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad

A comprehensive and easy to use sobriety app that lets you find recovery meetings in your area. You can use your current location or search by zip code, map the meeting, and meetings to your calendar. It allows you to find pretty much any 12 step meeting, including Over Eaters Anonymous and Sexual Compulsives Anonymous. It even lets you search by type (i.e. women/men only, big book study, open/closed)

5) AA Speakers to Go; $4.99

Platforms: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad; Android

Listening to past AA speakers can be a great way to meditate or to simply get some experience, strength and hope. And sometimes, we are just unable to make it to a meeting, even if we really need one. This sobriety app comes pre-loaded with over 400 speaker tapes.
