Day to Day
reduces relapse among
people overcoming drug or alcohol problems and provides
for participating organizations.Day
reduces relapse by mobilizing and organizing a network of people
who support your abstinence. The system provides you with daily feedback on progress
on the quality of recovery and reports that can point out specific things you can
do to reduce the chance of relapse. The support and daily feedback help you to stay
motived and on the road to recovery.
Day to Day
is easy and convenient
to use. Using your smart phone or computer, you simply take two to four minutes
each day to answer questions about things that affect your daily risk of relapse.
You then receive immediate feedback on the quality of your recovery, including a
probability of relapse and reports summarizing how you are doing. When you sign
up, you can nominate an unlimited number of people who support your recovery as
members of your social network. You can send them notes about how you are doing
and they automatically receive alerts and reports so they can easily stay up on
how you are doing and offer timely help when things are not going well. This daily
routine helps you stay on the right path by organizing your recovery support network
and providing daily feedback on recovery progress, one day at a time.
Day to Day
is not a replacement
for counselors, therapists, support network of friends and family, or 12-step and
other mutual help programs; rather, it provides daily structure that dramatically
improves your odds for lasting recovery.
The U.S. National Institute of Healthdescribes addiction as a chronic relapsing
condition. Sadly, research indicates that more than 60% of all people treated for
chemical addictions relapse in the year following treatment, most of them in their
first 90 days. Relapse is dramatically reduced among people who use a large social
support network. That’s why we recommend that you organize a large recovery support
network using Day to Day
the first full year of continuous abstinence.
The cost of Day to Day
trivial compared to the money lost each month of active addiction. We ask for a
3-month investment in your recovery at $10 / month or $30 total. If you don’t have
the money or a credit card, the sign-up includes simple steps to allow your subscription
to be paid by a friend or family member. We recommend you use Day to Day throughout
your first “high risk” year of recovery.
The Program Evaluation
tools are provided free to any agency that recommends
Day to Day
to their clients. Organizations wishing to implement program
evaluation-should contact us
to set up a demonstration or get started.
We (see about us
) created a suite
of products that help people in recovery from chronic conditions under a brand name
of Altus Recovery
name “Altus” was taken from a Latin word describing a high degree of depth, height
and maturity; this is a good description of growth in recovery. Our logo suggests
the image of a road, which represents the Altus road to recovery. The rock formations
featured on this page are cairns, symbols of important events used to mark one’s
journey, just as using the Altus tools helps you to stay on the right path by organizing
your social support network and giving you daily feedback on your recovery.
