Stay On The Right Path With The Right App!
Do You Have An Addiction To Heroin?
Heroin is an extremely dangerous opioid drug. Those who are addicted to heroin experience many painful side effects and symptoms of withdrawal when they do not have access to the drug. Some of the side effects of heroin include drowsiness, dilated pupils, nausea, dry mouth and euphoria. The withdrawal symptoms are blue lips and fingernails, the shallowing of breath, coma, and even death. If you have been abusing heroin and are experiencing any of these side effects or withdrawal symptoms, then you may be addicted.
Right Path Drug Rehab understands that being addicted to heroin is difficult to overcome. That is why we offer a broad spectrum of services that can help you recuperate from your addiction to heroin. It is important to always surround yourself with proper support and positive coping mechanisms to help you avoid relapsing. One of the things we recommend, especially if you are returning home after your 30, 60, to 90 day addiction recovery program, is the newly developed addiction recovery app.
An App? For Addiction Recovery?
Thats right! Thanks to the efforts of Brandi Spaulding and her colleagues from the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, you can now have your addiction recovery needs at the touch of button. At the moment, the app is available for Android Smartphone users; however, they are currently programming the app to be used for iPhones as well. So far the app has been approved by many therapists within the Marion, Ohio area. Due to the tripling numbers of heroin abuse within the past six years between 2007 and 2013, counselors feel that the extra support is extremely useful. If you download the app, you will find that you are able to do a number of things such as:
monitor the days you have been sober
read testimonial of other patients
read motivational stories
look at daily inspirational quotes
insert 10 supportive contacts
coin rewards for every milestone of sobriety
The most important aspect about the app is the panic button. Whenever you feel that you are about to relapse, or find yourself struggling more than usual, press the panic button. When you do so, a mass text message will be sent immediately to your ten supportive contacts. These contacts can be friends, family, and even counselors.
But What If I Am Not Struggling With Just Heroin?
The app is fairly new and is still undergoing construction; however, the creators do want the app to expand and be able to help those who are struggling with other substance abuse issues. They even want to be able to have the app assist those who struggle with mental disabilities such as depression and anxiety. In addition, creators want to add a GPS within the app for you to be able to locate the nearest addiction recovery meetings and also for support groups to locate you when you press the panic button. If you are in recovery and would like the extra help, check out the app today, and use it to keep you on the right path of health and sobriety.
