SURE Recovery

This app was jointly designed and developed by people with lived experience of drug and alcohol problems, researchers and clinicians from King’s College London, and Mindwave Ventures. It focuses on what is important to people in recovery.

The app is for anyone who is using alcohol or other drugs, in recovery or thinking about recovery. Everything in the app is free, and you can use it to track your recovery and achieve your personal goals.

Key features:

The Substance Use Recovery Evaluator (SURE): Use this to track all elements of your recovery including drinking and drug use, self-care, relationships, material resources, and outlook on life. You can track your scores over time and get personalised feedback including information and tips each time you use the tracker.

The Substance Use Sleep Scale (SUSS): Use this to track any problems you are having with sleep. You can look at your scores over time and will get personalised feedback including information and tips each time you use the tracker.

Diary: Record your thoughts and feelings, things that you feel grateful for or happy about, or a simple note for the day, all in one safe place. You can add as many as you want and go back to them later if you like.

Naloxone: Learn more about naloxone using our resources, including information, emergency advice and training. You can also test and track how much you know about naloxone. This could save a life!

Share your artwork with the recovery community and have it included in the app.

Reading: Free access to 'The Everyday Lives of Recovering Heroin Users'. This is a book about the lived experiences of people in recovery.
You can also choose to let us use your data for research at King’s College London. This is completely optional. If you want to share your data with us, we will use it anonymously to help us understand substance use and improve treatment in the future.
