Abstract

The project has created a design for a mobile service for personal Twelve Step work and situated Twelve Step work within the space of internet therapy and mobile services. The Twelve Step program helps addicts to recover from addiction and obsessive behavior, and their families to recover from the effects of living with an addict. Since recovery touches upon all aspects of life, mobile technology is a useful tool. The design presented below consists of three functions: · compiling the daily rhythm – helping users reflect over their routines through data collection and visualization, · rolling the dice - helping users break out of negative thinking by suggesting activities, · a gesture for letting go – helping users let go of issues they cannot handle. They are grounded in interviews and literature and will be further tested in future projects. Here, they are described and their minimal technical requirements are listed.
