There are several free and paid apps designed specifically for people who are recently recovered alcoholics.  The top free app according to Apple’s App Store is Sponsor Support, which helps people going through the 12 steps of recovery track the number of days months and years they’ve been sober for.  It also has a feature to immediately call or text helplines or sponsors in times of need.  The built in GPS helps recovering alcoholics find meeting spots for Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.  The top paid app is 12 Steps AA Companion which is available for $2.99 for Iphone and Android.  This app offers the same features as the free version but also helps addicts by providing them inspirational quotes of the day.  It also provides more than 160 pages from the bible for recovering alcoholics to read from and suggests prayers to read every day.

Apps for Recovering Drug Addicts

Just as there are a few apps specifically designed to help people going to Alcoholics Anonymous, there are also some apps specially tailored to fit the needs of people who go to Narcotics Anonymous and are recovering from drug addictions.  The top app for recovering drug addicts is Friend of Jimmy which is available for Iphone for only one dollar.  Friend of Jimmy is for people who go to Narcotics Anonymous and allows its users to see their recovery time broken down into years, months, days, hours and even minutes.  Being able to track their progress wherever they go can drastically improve a recovering drug addicts success at staying away from drugs.  This app, much like the apps developed to help alcoholics provides inspirational support through a variety of inspirational slogans.  Users can also contact their sponsor whenever they need them through the touch of a button.
