A Smartphone App For Families

Addiction Policy Forum has partnered with CHESS Health to launch Envoy, a free smartphone application help family members impacted with addiction, also called substance use disorders.

Envoy will help connect families impacted by addiction or families who have lost a loved one to overdose, provide evidence-based resources and expert support.


The Envoy App features include...

  • Information and Connections to Addiction Resources

    • Family members and caregivers can watch a series of educational videos on subjects related to the disease of addiction, different treatment options, how to help a loved one find treatment, and the need for family members to get their own help. In addition, family members and patients can locate family counseling centers and treatment centers
      when necessary.

  • Family Support and Group Chats

    • Family members may join, anonymously, moderated discussion groups to receive support from those with shared experience and to connect people locally or nationally. In a safe forum, family members can get key questions answered from experts and peers, and can open up regarding their experiences with addiction in their families.

  • Video testimonials

    • Family members gain access to a library of testimonial videos from other families sharing similar struggles, providing strength and hope. 

The Envoy app is the newest component of the CHESS Health Platform, which includes the Connections App for individuals with substance use disorder as well as the eIntervention, eTherapy, and eRecovery solutions for providers, governments, and health plans.
