Affect’s digital addiction treatment program motivates your every step
Download the app to sign up and get started.
Apps like Apple and Google maps make it easy to find your way and let you know how long it’s going to take to get there. They also warn you of traffic jams and accidents and even speeding cameras. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an app like that for your road to recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol? Could an addiction treatment app show you where the traps and triggers were, help you avoid them, and guide your every step towards sobriety?
The thing is, there is. Affect’s app connects people to an entire digital addiction treatment program that produces amazing results. People reduce their use of drugs and alcohol by over half in less than a month.
Affect is more than a sober app or tracker. It’s a fully licensed and accredited treatment program. There’s everything addiction treatment centers offer from group and individual therapy to medical support and more, except it all happens on your smartphone via telehealth counseling.
You don’t just have an app telling you the directions to your new life. You have personal guides – licensed and certified counselors and experts in addiction treatment – who know how to get you where you want to go.
Affect’s app is even more than a telehealth drug and alcohol rehab program. It was created using game design theory that motivates people to take each and every step of their recovery journey through rewards and positive encouragement. You keep going because you want to. You keep coming back because it works and fits your life.
There’s no drunk driving on your road to recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol when you’re using our app. Affect’s digital treatment program is your co-pilot and navigator to a new life.
Hooked on Healthy Habits
There are many media stories about how games, social media and smartphone apps are engineered to be addictive. Those engagement techniques can help someone develop new healthy habits and break free from the negative habits that lie under addictions to alcohol, marijuana, meth, cocaine, and prescription stimulants like ADD medications.
Phones, apps, and games are considered “addictive” by some because they trigger the part of our brains neuroscientists call “the rewards center.” These experiences engage us and we keep coming back to them. Drugs and alcohol trigger the brain’s rewards center by introducing chemicals that make us feel good. And our brains start to depend upon those substances being there.
Research has shown that a form of treatment called Contingency Management that uses incentives and rewards to make positive changes works best, by creating those same engaging experiences. Our program has more than double the success rate of traditional rehab clinical treatment. We beat addiction because we changed the rules and put the latest science in the human brain and technology to work for you.
We stay with you as you learn new healthy habits to replace your drinking habit. Many traditional programs discharge people for relapses. We’re different. Once you’re with us, we’re always with you.
There are sobriety apps where you go it alone, pay subscriptions to get peer recovery, or random connections to therapists. Affect is a fully licensed and accredited treatment provider with counselors who specialize in substance use disorder treatment. Insurance covers costs of the program. It’s completely confidential and your privacy is protected by law.
You get all the care and professional expertise of a clinical rehab program with all the advantages of an app.

Affect Member Reviews
You understood me and made sure I was safe in the midst of all my experiences.
I love my coach. He’s a licensed professional, not just another former addict.
This program is actually useful. My DUI program takes an hour just to do roll call.
This program changed my life. I now have goals. Before I had nothing.
