The 5 Most Helpful Tools for Recovery Apps, Books and Podcasts

Staying sober is hard work, especially in the beginning. Here are the five most beneficial resources to help your recovery, according to our own alumni. The whole list only costs $3.50, or $0.00 with a library card.

1. I Am Sober (app)

4.8 / 5 stars
I Am Sober is a free, powerful app that goes into great detail about addiction. It keeps track of your sober time, recommends pledges and helps you stay motivated. You can rate how you feel each day and track what causes you trouble. It’s a well-designed app with continued support and updates that keep you going as you reflect on your sober milestones. You’ll feel accomplished every time you open it.

2. The Road to Freedom by Johnny Baker (book)

4.9 / 5 stars
This book is about the author’s own struggles with overcoming alcoholism. His story is painfully real, yet humorous and inspiring. It’s a fast read, but the ten life lessons will stay with you forever. The truths and ideas make you rethink your entire outlook on life. Note, this book takes a religious perspective.

3. Tack Gratitude Journal (app)

4.9 / 5 stars
While the I Am Sober app tops the list for being packed with features, Tack is on the list for how easy it is to use. In general, gratitude lists are so simple that they’re often overlooked. The fact is, logging the things you’re grateful for is a scientifically-proven way to become a happier person. Do it as a habit when you wake up and throughout the day as you experience moments that bring you joy. You can also browse through your entire list as a reminder of all the things that you have to appreciate.

4. The Jordan B. Peterson Podcast (podcast)

4.4 / 5 stars
Jordan B. Peterson’s podcast is a collection of interviews and lectures that discuss complex ideas. Yet, the core content is simple: take on the greatest responsibility you can for your own life, aim for the highest good and learn from the stories of those who came before you. How can you not be inspired by that message?

5. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill (book)

4.5 / 5 stars
Don’t be fooled by the title, this book teaches you how to become an incredible person, treat people well and see the things that happen to you in a different way. It guides you to have faith, persistence and to dream of something bigger.

BONUS: Top 12-Step (apps)

Most alumni that are succeeding in their recovery embrace free and readily-available meetings and support at AA or NA. It’s not that the content of every meeting changes their lives, it’s about changing their lives to prioritize recovery. That means showing up regularly to meetings and tackling the steps with integrity.

Treatment is for: Myself Loved one

Not ready to call?

I don’t know if I need treatment.

You’re here because you know the problem is out of control. You’ve spent months if not years trying to convince yourself (and those around you) that your drug or alcohol use isn’t “that bad.”

Don’t let denial drag out the suffering. Addiction is serious. You can (and should) get help before it completely takes over your life.

I don’t know what treatment would be best.

Have you tried getting help before? If so, it’s time to follow the science. The most effective process involves detox, rehab and outpatient treatments.

Don’t be overwhelmed! All you have to do now is call to talk about where you’re at. You’ll take it one step at a time from there. Before you know it, you’ll be sober. You can do this!

I can’t convince my loved one to go.

Even if you’re feeling powerless, there’s always hope! Donny, our dedicated ARISE interventionist, can talk to you today about your options. Following his advice, three of every four people come directly to treatment.

I'm not sure if you can help.

Feelings of doubt and helplessness are part of addiction, but you can find hope here. Our treatment is backed by research partnerships with two universities and hundreds of online reviews. From the Washington Post to CNN to Vice News, our expertise is trusted by the top news sources, as well as professional athletes.

The fact is — thousands of people across the country are living sober, productive lives after their time here. You deserve the same chance.

Now is not a good time.

You may worry about missing out on family or work, but the truth is you’re missing out now when your thoughts are preoccupied on your next fix or you’re too sick or high to show up.

Your job is guaranteed by law. And, your spouse, parents and kids all need you sober.

I have more questions.

It’s normal to have tons of questions, especially about your specific situation, insurance or how it all works. Why not get your questions answered now?

Let's talk through this together.
