Millions of people across the World suffer from a debilitating addiction to illicit substances or alcohol. Addiction consumes the lives of individuals, and consequently has an effect on their peers and loved ones. BetterMe aims to empower the individual, so that they may reclaim the lost parts of their lives.

What it does

Sets goal for the user on their way to sobriety, and gives them access to resources and a social media platform where they can talk to people who are in a similar situation

How we built it

Used Android Studio and HTML/Javascript/bootstrap and IBM's Watson Tone Analyzer to design mobile and web applications geared towards the optimum user experience

Challenges we ran into

Integrating the mobile and web app together was difficult, but we figured it out after extensive research. Fragmenting within a fragment was a difficult concept to grasp as well as mapping out a friendly user interface.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We were able to fully able to implement a SQL database, from scratch, and built a successful, layered front end geared towards ease of use and visual aesthetic.

What we learned

What's next for BetterMe

Expand social media capabilities to facilitate relationships between users.
