60% of Recovering Alcoholics/Addicts Relapse; a New Tech-Driven Recovery Support App Aims to Change That

Share Article

Every 6 out of 10 people who receive addiction treatment relapse in the first year, meaning they slip from recovery back into active addiction. A new mobile technology-assisted recovery app (the iStep Recovery App) has been launched to address this and help people recovering from substance and behavioral addictions.

iStep Recovery Support App

The iStep Recovery Support App is a mobile 12 step recovery program and management platform with daily tasks, meditation, reports, and addiction recovery support tools.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services found that more than 60 percent of people treated for substance use disorders experience relapse within the first year, and the other 40% remain at high risk of relapse*. They further reported that preliminary evidence shows technology-assisted recovery support approaches seem to be effective in helping individuals maintain their recovery**.

This shockingly high relapse rate is tragic, and the team behind the iStep Recovery Support App is working hard to lower it. "I have simply never met someone who relapsed while properly working their recovery program," says AJ Taylor, founder of the iStep project. "I first entered recovery 20 years ago and relapsed years later when I stopped working mine. Our app will reduce the chance of relapse by supporting these critically important recovery programs worldwide."

iStep is the only app of its kind with 25 program variations to focus on a primary substance (like alcohol or drugs) or problematic behavior (like gambling, sex, pornography, etc.) of concern. The iStep program also recognizes and relates to a user's non-religious or religious views on life. iStep continually analyzes tracked behavior and emotions to deliver meaningful daily guidance and helps to expedite self-improvement and personal growth. Maintaining a strong recovery program has finally become more manageable, and now meets the needs of the modern high-tech world.

iStep is now available to download on iOS and Android mobile phones from Apple and Google Play app stores. It is now for a limited time, possible to support your or a loved one's life-long journey in recovery for just $19; for most, that is less than the cost of one self-destructive day in active addiction.
