More support for healthy communities in social media has arrived with the launch of Better – My Recovery APP

Better APP is merging harm reduction with the recovery community, instantly connecting people seeking to expand their social “recovery” network and people who use drugs to be connected to peer monitors so they don’t need to use alone. Better APP will help people build Recovery Capital in their lives, by building social and community capital.

Features of Better APP

  • My Recovery Wall – a social media feed for people in recovery
  • My Recovery Capital Score – a brief assessment of your recovery capital every 10 days
  • My Recovery Plan – a place you can keep track of your long term and short term goals
  • Safety Net – a global overdose prevention tool, where someone who is using drugs alone can add a peer to monitor their use and call emergency services if there is an overdose or people can volunteer to be your safety net
