Recovery Buddy (2015)$27,424
Description
The aim of this project is to develop, implement, and evaluate a mobile phone application (Recovery Buddy), an interactive tool to support clients during the period following substance use treatment, when the risk for relapse is high. The Bridge Program (Salvation Army) is a not-for-profit organisation offering an intensive 8-week substance use treatment program. Post-program aftercare lasts up to 12-months and includes weekly/fortnightly counselling sessions. During the 8-week program, clients complete problem solving exercises and develop personalised coping plans and relapse prevention skills which they are encouraged to use during aftercare. However, client feedback suggests they may not access their coping plans when needed and may struggle to maintain their relapse prevention skills. It is a significant challenge to engage clients during the aftercare period and despite best efforts, around 60% of clients will relapse within the first 12 months of treatment. Recovery Buddy will allow clients to access their personally tailored exercises directly from their mobile phone whenever they need. Clients may choose to access exercises directly or may be directed to exercises based on how they are feeling or based on answers to regular surveys on substance use, mental health, and motivation. For example, a client indicating they are having a craving would be guided through an exercise aimed at tolerating cravings.
