A Smartphone App to Help with Recovery

To help support individuals in recovery from substance use disorder, Addiction Policy Forum has partnered with CHESS Health to launch Connections, a free smartphone app that is scientifically proven to support patients in recovery by reducing relapse and promoting pro-social engagement. 


With the app you can…

  • Track your sobriety,
  • Access e-therapy to learn new recovery skills, 
  • Connect with trained counselors and peers through messaging, 
  • Clinical support available 7 days/wk, 9am -10 pm est
  • Track your treatment plan and set reminders, 
  • Journal daily about your journey, 
  • And discover helpful videos, testimonials and more through the unique resource library.


Connections is the only available app that is backed by years of research to support its provider-care management functionality, predictive relapse indicators, and analytics to reduce relapse.  



Our  hours are 9am - 10pm ET each day. Download requests, chats with our counselors and other services will occur during these "office hours". If you have other questions or would like additional information, please contact us at
