More Americans died of drug overdose in 2016 than died during the entire course of the Vietnam War. We are losing a generation to the scourge of addiction. Sober Grid has built a mobile application for Android and iOS that connects individuals in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction for 24/7 peer support in order to help them achieve sobriety and stave off relapse, anytime and anywhere. Peer support has been proven to be effective in helping individuals achieve and maintain recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Sober Grid facilitates this support and has a "burning desire" functionality that enables members who are struggling to alert the community that they are in need of immediate help.
Sober Grid has grown into the largest sober social networking mobile app and is currently in use by 100,000+ members and growing rapidly. In addition, Sober Grid has been awarded grants from both the National Institute of Health and the National Science Foundation to build predictive artificial intelligence capabilities into the application to identify and prevent relapse before it occurs. As a result, Sober Grid is improving and saving lives on a daily basis.
