Field Guide to Life: Addiction Recovery Support

By BookMobile

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Looking for tools to help you stay on track in your recovery from addiction to alcohol or other drugs? Field Guide to Life is an app intended for daily use by those who are new to recovery, but can be used by anyone who is seeking support staying sober one day at a time.

Created by Hazelden Publishing, the Field Guide to Life app includes inspiring daily messages that can be shared with friends, a sober counter visible anytime you open the app, a handy list of the 12 Steps, videos featuring recovery experts, a customizable home screen, and more. No in-app purchase required.

The White House Behavioral Health Patient Empowerment Challenge award was presented to Hazelden Publishing for its Field Guide to Life app for providing crucial first-year support to people newly recovering from addiction.


Each day for one year read a new message of guidance to support your recovery. Each message includes an activity to help you engage even further in your recovery journey and ends with an inspirational thought for the day. Save your favorites so that you can return to them later or share them with a friend by text or email.

Never miss your daily reading again. Chose a time of day to receive a reminder with a teaser of each day’s motivational message.

Watch video clips featuring recovery experts and others in the Fellowship sharing advice and knowledge. Each video is meant to challenge you by focusing on an activity that drives positive change.

Enter your sober birthday and view your sober stats at any time to monitor the days, hours, minutes, and seconds that you’ve been in recovery.

Combat cravings and stay focused on your goals by uploading and storing up to five images of friends, family members, passions, and aspirations with small captions that you can view anytime to remind you of what keeps you motivated in your recovery.

A user-friendly Track My Day tool helps you track your biggest obstacles to successful recovery such as stress, anger, anxiety—and power-ups such as meditation, honesty, and exercise.

Designate key supporters like your sponsor to be alerted with the touch of an SOS button when you need help.

Learn about preventing relapse and create personalized relapse prevention and response plans to help you stay on track.

What's New in Version 2.0.2

With this update, phone users can now share the entire daily message by text—a highly requested fix! We also revised our terms of service and updated the app for iOS10.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful reminder in the evening

I'm grateful for this app and its ability remind me at 4:55 to plan for my evening. It helps to keep me focused and counting my blessings. If I don't want to be "outted" I turn off the notifications.

I also really like the ability to forward text of the main body or email the whole page. If I want to send the whole page as a text I can always select all and copy.

I appreciate the day tracker and the relapse planner. I need to complete that but I'm glad it's there. And the SOS button, while I've not yet had to use it, feels like it could be a life saver.

Just Awful

This was really a waste of money, so little to it. I can't understand how something like this could be released for any reason other than to exploit those suffering souls that are desperate for sobriety. Content is very much geared to newcomers - trust me don't waste your money on this. All I got from my purchase was a resentment for being ripped off.
