Loosid 2024 Social Impact Statement

“Loosid was created based upon the core belief that the opposite of addiction is connection and it is only through identification and connection with others that true healing can take place. 

It was and will always be our goal to maintain and foster a community where all people who share the common bond of addiction can connect and engage, and ultimately heal.”

Brand Vision and Goals

Through innovative technology, we aim to create a space that encourages personal growth, celebrates sobriety, and transforms lives.

Together, we believe in building a world where everyone has the opportunity to lean into  fulfilling, healthy, and sober lifestyle – to live sober, love sober.

Support at scale

We believe technology is the only way to help both connect the sober community as well as educate all affected by addiction AT SCALE

Vulnerability as strength

We believe our greatest strength lies within our vulnerability and the courage to ask for help.

Access to care

Though addiction does not discriminate, access to addiction care does. For that reason, we are steadfast in our commitment to keep the Loosid platform FREE to all members of the Loosid community in perpetuity. No one should ever have to pay a penny to connect with others and ask and receive help. That is our commitment.

Education & Stigma

We are unwavering in our dedication to break down barriers to progress and eliminate stigmas of addiction which are killing millions of people every year.  For this reason, we have built a strong and prevalent education component to Loosid to help educate our members on addiction at an early age and kill the associated stigma preventing millions of people from getting the help they so desperately need.

With 6,000+ Reviews on the App Store

I have been using Loosid for almost a year now and I love the community I have found there. It’s a place to support others and get support. I have made life-long friends though the app.


All I was looking for was a sobriety tracking app. What I found is a great community of diverse people coming together to discuss sobriety.


I seen this app come across my facebook feed and I had to check it out. I strongly encourage those that are new to recovery or are struggling to check out this app.


I love the Loosid app, been a member from very early on, and it’s been exciting to see it continue to grow. I had been looking for something like this for a long time and this is the first app to really do it right.


I’ve been on the fence when it comes to sobriety. I’ve been looking to eliminate alcohol from my life all together and it’s a complete lifestyle change - I guess you could say I’m sober curious.


We envision a future where individuals around the world instinctively turn to Loosid for support, connection, and inspiration on their journey to a fulfilling and sober life.
Thank you for your support in making 2024 a year of impact.
