New App Helps Control Alcohol Addiction

Posted: Updated:

A new smart phone application appears to help people in recovery for alcohol addiction.

The A-Chess app features audio relaxation, communication with peer support groups, and even sends an alert if users go near a high-risk location, like a bar.

Researchers tested the app on a group of patients leaving a residential treatment center.  They had fewer binge drinking episodes and more consistent abstinence from alcohol than patients in the study who did not use the app.
