Turn – Addiction Recovery aims to help people struggling with substance abuse or addiction. The app includes psychoeducation, cognitive-behavioral strategies, mindfulness, and connections to providers. The app starts with questions to measure areas like sleep, exercise, nutrition, social support & accountability, and stress. A “Today” page provides an overview of goals for the day. The “Education” page provides information on addiction as well as relevant meditation exercises. There is also a tracking feature to journal thoughts, achievements, and overall progress. Turn also provides connections with others or therapists through the app. Full access to Turn’s Journeys, Meditations, Tracking, Analytics, and Allies requires a monthly payment of $9.99, an annual payment of $59.99, or one time payment of $199.
