New app appears to help people recovering from alcoholism

A new smart phone app appears to help people recovering from alcohol addiction.

The A-CHESS app features audio relaxation, access to communication with peer support groups, and it will even send an alert if users go near a high-risk location, such as a bar.

Researchers tested the app on a group of patients leaving a treatment center.

Patients who used the app had fewer binge drinking episodes and were more likely to stay away from alcohol than patients who didn't use the app.
