It Helps Me be More Self-Aware

LifeguardApp is really good, and it would help people. I feel better when using the app. Doing drugs is dangerous, and before, I would do them in the hallway where people could see. It also made me more aware of how often I am using and I started to think about recovery.

This is a Great Idea

I work in a safe injection site, so I know first-hand how difficult it is to wake someone who is nodding off.

I Feel Safer

LifeguardApp about three or four times per day and it really does help me feel much safer.
