Our ears are always on the ground when it comes to aids for treatment for alcohol abuse, and other forms of substance addiction.
In this article, we are going to highlight a new tool that may tremendously help when it comes to treating alcohol abuse.
But before that, our “disclaimer”. Here at UpBeatrecovery, we have no problems when someone tries to DIY their addiction treatment. In fact, we believe it’s the best solution for some. Despite that, we still advise that you consult with a professional before you do any kind of self-treatment. An opinion of a professional can be a very helpful tool when it comes to winning your addiction battles.
Now that we have covered that, let’s check out this new tool.
When it comes to tools for alcohol recovery, the last thing in your mind is a wristband. However, this is not just an ordinary wristband. In fact, this wristband won the top prize offered by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism…
Introducing BACtrack Skyn!
BACtrack Skyn is a wristband that monitors your alcohol level in almost real time. All you need to do is wear it. You can check the readings directly from the wristband. You can also hook it up to your phone and you can then get the readings from there.
Aside from giving you almost real-time alcohol blood readings, it can also vibrate to notify you that you are nearing your blood alcohol limit.
On the downside, this new wristband is still in the prototype phases. However, don’t feel down as it won’t be long now and it will start to hit the market.
I always believed in the saying “If You Can’t Measure It, You Can’t Manage It”. That is the reason why I think this new wristband can be a great help for recovery and even preventing relapse.
But on a bigger picture, substance abuse is a problem of the mind and body. For many, there is a psychological reason why they resort to substance abuse.
To truly cure addiction, you have to cure the body and the reason for substance abuse. However, with BACtrack Skyn, it’s a lot easier to cure the problem as you can manage the “body” aspect of the problem. You can then tackle other problems such as the “psychological” aspect of addiction.
