Preventing alcohol relapses through digital support systemsBy d2 Digital Design
d2 Digital by Design Ltd in collaboration with CRI have developed The Alcohol Relapse Prevention Programme which provides an immediate support system for people who are completing a programme of alcohol treatment and support.
- The programme starts by sending daily text messages to those who have just left rehab. The texts are designed to encourage them to stick to their plans and goals.
- Depending on their response to the texts, they might receive further support from a personalised motivational text, or a call from a professional or peer.
In November 2014 d2 Digital by Design Ltd was awarded £132,248 (including £10,000 for evaluation) to build and trial a peer mentoring function into the existing platform.
