A digital recovery app is a game changer for addiction treatment

There are many media stories about how games, social media and smartphone apps are engineered to be addictive. But what if a smartphone app could use those powerful engagement techniques to hook someone on building new healthy habits, and a program could work so well that it could actually treat addictions to alcohol, where traditional treatment falls short and is hard to get?
That’s exactly what we’ve done at Affect. Harnessing the power of behavioral science, we’ve built an integrated digital treatment program that finally works for the most difficult substance use disorders.
Hooked on Healthy Habits
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.
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.
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.

A private program in your pocket
Residential and outpatient treatment can cost thousands of dollars in out of pocket expenses. Affect offers everything a rehab clinic does, but puts it all in your pocket and goes wherever you do. It’s discreet so you keep your recovery private while still having a compassionate community to support you. You don’t have to leave your life to start creating a new one free of alcohol.
You have access to individual and group therapy, medical assistance, and a full program that helps you learn to manage your triggers and rebuild a life while you recover. With rewards and incentives, you are continually motivated to keep working your recovery journey.
Based on science that rewards healthy choices
Our program offers almost $600 in incentives as you succeed in treatment (known as “contingency management”) to help reward healthy activities and encourage new habits.
We also deliver group and individual therapy and medications to help manage your cravings. Together, these treatments have consistently shown better recovery outcomes than any other.
Entirely private, fully digital, and always available
All of your appointments are conducted over secure video conference, so you can choose where you’d like to be. No traveling to a rehab clinic or sitting on a folding chair in a basketball gym.
Our smartphone app provides direct access to your calendar, daily tasks, progress tracking, and care team. Whenever you need us, we’re with you.
Support both inside and outside of treatment
Need help finding a new job, a better place to live, a doctor, a way to lower your bills? We’ve got you.
Getting sober isn’t just about quitting. It’s also about changing your life for the better, forever. Your care team will work with you to make improvements that can sustain your recovery and give you a life you’re proud of.
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.
