A multi-part application that focuses on routine and connection. With this system, we hope to provide individuals with guidance in their recovery. The system can be used as a stand-alone guide, as well as, in conjunction with a psychologist.
Mr. Craig M. Traub. Was our sponsor for this project. He is a criminologist and clinical psychologist who specialises in addiction. We developed the application for him and the addiction center he works for.
