Sober Grid started because the founders were looking for a sober community that could be accessed anytime anywhere. Today it is a platform full of evidence-based tools to help anyone get sober and stay sober. Sober Grid app is a sobriety social network available on all smartphones, which delivers on-demand peer support right into the hands of users in recovery from substance addiction. Eligible facilities can add their “graduates” to the app to stay in touch after they've completed treatment. Our team was responsible for creating Sober Grid’s new iOS application and helped with Android OS development.

Project's scope

Firstly, we had to make the client aware of the potential threats when continuing the project on the code base we received. Our scope was an app to create a social network for addicts who have been independent of stimulants for some time so that they can meet in a drug-free environment. We have created mobile applications for Android and iOS, we have worked with an external backend team and a product developer.


There was a technical challenge as we had to take over the code created by another team. Thanks to our skills and experience, by familiarizing ourselves with the purpose of the product's functionality, we knew that deciding to rewrite a significant part of the code base that we received is the best idea, and we managed to build a great product.

Technologies used in this project


We’ve managed to cooperate with our client and to make them aware of the potential threats when continuing the project on the code base we received. This allowed us to develop a collaborative approach and to make the right decisions on further product development at an early stage of analysis. The result was a ready-made stable product capable of handling an extensive user base.
