You can beat addiction to prescription drugs without rehab
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 prescription drug addictions to medicines like Adderall, Ritalin, Dexedrine, and other stimulants, where traditional treatment falls short?
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 hardest drug addictions.
How many people misuse prescription drugs? It’s more common than people might think. 5.8% (or about 16.1 million people) reported misusing any prescription psychotherapeutic drug in the past 12 months. 1.8% (or about 5.1 million people) reported misusing prescription stimulants in the past year.
It’s not hard to get hooked on these powerful substances, but it’s hard to get off them without the right kind of help. We made it easy to get the kind of treatment that works and created a robust program that you can keep working and works for you.
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 to prescription drugs because we changed the rules. Now you can win.

“Affect has shown me a caring side that I never had for myself. It has made me rise as an individual and I have uplifted my courage, bravery, and willpower to obtain my sobriety. Not only did I find myself, but I also found friends in counseling. By friends, I mean someone who really believes in you when others won’t. This program is amazing and works.”
A private program in your pocket
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 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. It’s built specifically to treat stimulant addictions like prescription stimulants, methamphetamine and cocaine. With rewards and incentives, you are continually motivated to keep working your recovery journey.
We stay with you as you learn new healthy habits to replace your prescription drug habit. Many traditional programs discharge people for relapses. We’re different. Once you’re with us, we’re always with you.
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.

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.
