Alcoholics Anonymous is the original twelve-step recovery program. Since it was started in the 1930s, AA’s peer-support model has helped countless people stop drinking. It’s free to attend and meetings can be found at all times, all over the country. If you’re looking for an AA meeting near you, you’ll find one here or check our list of virtual and dial in AA, NA and Smart Recovery meetings.
But if you’re looking for more robust support in recovery, you can find that with us. Affect’s app is a perfect companion to twelve step programs. You get an outpatient treatment program right in your pocket and never have to go to a clinic.
AA works for many with its community of sponsors who have successfully brought their addiction to alcohol into remission. But people often struggle with relapses and need more support from trained counselors and medical professionals who are experienced in substance use disorder treatment. It also helps to have access to medications to manage cravings and ease discomfort from anxiety, depression, or other effects in early sobriety.
Professional treatment also helps people who are deeper into their step work and getting into the reasons behind their drinking. Licensed and experienced counselors who specialize in addiction not only help people stop drinking, they also know how to sustain recovery as people uncover their issues and work to resolve them.
Research shows that being able to easily access treatment is the key to staying with recovery. We know that a lack of convenient, affordable care is one of the major reasons that only 1 in 13 people who need treatment for alcohol and substance use disorders do not get the help they need. That’s why we developed a robust program that resolves those challenges and fits your life. Our revolutionary system of rewards keeps you motivated and working every step of your recovery journey until you’re better.
A private treatment program in your pocket
Residential and outpatient treatment can cost thousands of dollars and require weeks away from home or long commutes to clinics. 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.
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.
“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.”
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.

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.
