recoveryBox, the iPhone Mobile App for Addiction Recovery

The simple How To's of using recoveryBox. Help is always available by emailing us!

1. Enter Daily Lights

Lights are broken into different categories.

Your goal is to have as many Green Lights as possible which shows that you are taking care of yourself.

Yellow Lights indicate that the activity puts you in danger of acting out.

Red Lights are when you act out. Be honest with yourself and record your Red Lights when you slip up! Your accountability partner will want to know this so they can encourage you.

Entry of lights is flexible. Record that you took your meds as 1 Green Light event, or if you take medicine four times a day as part of your treatment, record it as 4 Green Lights.

Build a list of comments for Green Light Categories that are specific to you. If you take a walk, eat three meals and run every day, list those under the physical comments. Enter it once and next time you only have to select from the list.

Entering Red Lights will adjust your sobriety date automatically for you.

2. Enter Triggers

Once daily, record triggers (if any). Any triggers above a Green can be included in the text/email sent to your accountability partner allowing for complete transparency. Triggers can be customized to be specific to you!

Journaling will document your intensities and help you establish patterns. Journaling will also allow your accountability partner to understand your day better.

3. Text/Email Accountability Partner

Send your accountability partner a text/email each day, several times a day, once a week or whatever you have decided is best for your recovery. Included will be all of your light counts as well as triggers, and comments if you enable that under preferences.

recoveryBox iPhone Addiction Recovery Accountability
User initiation of text/emails puts ownsership on the individual in recovery. But don't worry. You can set a motivator to remind you to send the text/email at a certain time (you can even set one up to remind you to enter your lights too).

All communication pieces are displayed on the screen for you to edit before it is sent so you have complete control over what is sent.
