Time for a change? Use AlcoChange!

AlcoChangeAlcoChange is an app that has been developed to record drinking habits, monitor triggers and record wellbeing after alcohol use.

The free AlcoChange app is being supported by the council’s Drug and Alcohol Action Team (DAAT), who have assisted the creators with the development of the app.

The app will nudge the user to remind them to use the app and record their alcohol use and will also provide reminders of the mood they experienced the last time they drank alcohol.

If the app shows the user is at risk of harmful or hazardous alcohol levels, the app will provide nudges with details of Slough support services.

A breathalyser attachment will also be available to purchase in the near future. This device attaches to your mobile phone and enables users to record breathalyser readings in the app.   

One of Slough DAAT’s key aims is to improve the health and wellbeing of those who misuse drugs and alcohol.

The app will enable Slough DAAT to better understand the alcohol trends of people who aren’t already known to support services. It will also enable them to target campaigns and services more effectively.

To download the free app, search AlcoChange in your app store.
