Research shows that the stigma of addiction keeps people from getting the treatment they need. The most difficult task is to reach the hidden segment: the ones who have trouble admitting and coming clean about their addiction.
”Addiction is a widespread problem in society today that has a great impact on the individual as well as on their families and friends. But for many in need, the step of reaching out for help is too big,” says Andreas Haglund, CEO and co-founder at Cairy.
The 12-step programme offered by AA is not adapted to an individual’s demands and expectations today. To form new healthy relationships, people with addictions worldwide need a new digital approach to group therapy which helps them to get support from the community any time they need it, even if there is no opportunity to visit offline group meetings.
Cairy is a social mobile application for people with addiction that aims to help them become and stay sober. The application combines the essence of the 12-step programme with machine learning algorithms and recent scientiﬁc advances within health psychology and neuroscience.
Cairy app offers access to an online supportive community and recovery programme functionality. Individuals can use video chats, share and discuss the experience with others while completing rehabilitative exercises and achieving specific milestones during their treatment.
