In 2019, we conducted an acceptability study and sent out the prototype of our app to a number of current and ex-problem gamblers. We conducted over 60 hours worth of interviews in order to determine what we could improve about our app and what features people want. Based on this we iterated the therapy, design and feature list into the app that you can download today. This app has been made with problem gamblers for problem gamblers.
In the coming months, we plan on starting a feasibility study with our Research partners with aims to start a Randomized Controlled Trial at the start of 2021. At RecoverMe, every step that we have taken so far has been evidence-based and that is something we are adamant on continuing with.
