For People in Addiction Recovery
by People in Addiction Recovery.
Sober Grid was founded by Beau Mann to provide a sober community that could be accessed anytime, anywhere.
Today, it is a platform full of evidence-based tools to help anyone find and maintain their path to sobriety while avoiding traditional barriers to accessing support.
Some join to get support, others to give it. Each free download, post, and connection creates an opportunity to strengthen one’s personal resolve while helping others do the same.
