‘Step Away’ is a smartphone app made to help people control or stop drinking alcohol. It also helps connect people with local alcohol support services.
Drinking too much alcohol can increase your risk of physical and mental harm. It can also have a harmful effect on your family, friends, and the community.
Although many people want to control their drinking habits, reducing or giving up alcohol can be hard. The Step Away app can help you manage your drinking habits.
The ‘Step Away’ app was created in the United States, and has been adapted for New Zealand (with the support of funding from the Health Research Council of New Zealand).
The 'NZ Step Away' app is available for all New Zealanders who have an iPhone (sorry - we do not yet have the app ready for android phones - but it's in development!).
