Whether you are a clinician treating people with eating disorders or are working towards recovery with a treatment professional, you will want to add one more to your repertoire.
Rise Up + Recover, a top-ranked app, available on both Android and iOS, was designed to help people self-monitor their eating disorder recovery and share their progress with their treatment team from the privacy of their mobile phone.
Recovering from an eating disorder and any other mental illness requires a lot of help from trained professionals. Apps can never substitute, nor replace professional treatment, but they allow people to self-monitor their behaviors and keep track of their goals outside their therapist’s office.
Used well over a million times, Rise Up + Recover is the go-to-app for many clinicians and recovery warriors. Here are eight reasons you will want to download and start using this free app today.
1. Log meals, emotions and behaviors
Self-monitoring is a great way to gain more accountability and increase awareness to thought patterns.
2. Export PDF summaries of Meal-Log and Check-In to share with professional treatment team
Einstein said it best when he remarked that “problems cannot be solved with the same mind set that created them.” Sharing records with a treatment professional is a great way to have another mind working on the problem in an effort to draw out the patterns and find meaningful connections.
I’m suggesting this app for all my patients. Absolutely awesome! – RD at Remuda Ranch
3. Set custom reminders
Remembering to do recovery homework can be tough that is why the Rise Up + Recover app has customizable reminders that can be disguised as encouraging mantras to provide extra motivation and support throughout the day.
4. Practice healthy coping skills
I’m a dietitian in San Diego and recently heard about Rise Up. I’m so excited to share this with my clients.
5. Guaranteed that personal data is protected behind a pass-code
A lot of mobile health apps struggle with the aspect of data security. Rise Up + Recover only stores data on the user’s device, so no sensitive information is exchanged among devices.
I’m in DBT therapy and we use a diary card where we have to log the same exact stuff to see where we need to work most, and with this app, its so much easier to do it while keeping my stuff confidential, using the pass-code and daily reminder. I also like that you can add and remove the actions, emotions and drugs to fit your specific area of work. I recommend it to any one that is on the road to recovery.
6. Share quotes, images and affirmations
7. Access a wide range of empowering resources
Recovery Warriors wide-range of resources such as our award winning online magazine, weekly podcast, music playlists and popular social media accounts can be accessed conveniently within the app.
8. Find Help
Rise Up + Recover was designed for people to use in conjunction with treatment, but what happens if they are not seeing a treatment professional? For one-third of our users downloading the Rise Up + Recover app is their first point of contact in finding treatment and support. We want to make sure that they get connected to reliable, professional, eating disorder specialists so we developed ConnectED, the world’s first treatment directory to be embedded into an app. If you are a treatment professional and want to list your practice and help more people recover you can find out more information here.
My therapist told me about this app, I had tried Recovery Record before but that one is a little bit more difficult to navigate around in. Rise Up is really easy to use and I highly recommend. Good luck to everyone in recovery out there!
