You choose how anonymous you want to be on our platform and can easily choose in your profile if you want to show you with name and image. For us, the most important thing is that as a user you have to decide how open you want to be, at the same time we support each other in daring to show who we are, in order to break the stigma around dependency.
We do not pass on any information whatsoever to a third party, such as advertisers, which might otherwise be the case on other platforms. You can also delete any information about you from us at any time. We take this issue very seriously.
Our primary target audience is people who live sober, whether you define yourself as an addict or not. We also welcome you who are thinking about stopping drinking for various reasons, as we believe that our platform can be a good and easily accessible first step to a new way of living.
If you have any other dependency, you are of course also welcome. We do what we can to develop functions that put you in touch with other members with the same background.
We want to be self-sufficient and maintain a total independence from third parties, such as advertisers, who might otherwise come across data about our users. This also means that we can keep away from the commercial impact of major players with a different agenda than ours.
We finally believe that a properly designed membership model also creates a certain natural selection of serious users and in this way a much healthier climate is maintained on the platform.
Downloading the app, registering a profile and sharing the content of others costs nothing. However, a paid membership fee is required to access our premium services, such as the video function. Welcome!
Our experience says that the very best is to quickly ask others for help if you feel that you have lost control. You can do this through your nearest dependency account, your health center or through professional advice focused on addiction. You can also turn to any of the various twelve-step programs available. Please use our community to get in touch with other members who have been in the same situation. We will gradually develop features that quickly put you in direct contact with professional help.
It is something you can only decide for yourself, for example, it is a good indicator to see if you have a hard time stopping drinking once you have started, or if you get consequences in your usual life from drinking. In our app you will find people with such experiences that can tell more, we also recommend visiting a twelve step meeting as ex AA if you want to learn more about the dependency disease. There are open meetings where anyone is welcome.
You can easily block other members. Your security and integrity are fundamental to us and you should always feel comfortable at CAIRY. If you find something inappropriate, there are features to report this so that we can take appropriate action.
For us, it is absolutely fundamental with your security and privacy, you should always feel comfortable with us and if you have other things to report, there are functions for it.
Many in our target group feel that it is not comfortable to be open with their problems in these forums and that it is very difficult to find like-minded people to talk to. We strongly believe in bringing this target group together in a common channel, to maximize and enable everything from recognition and contact creation to support and new community.
We who founded CAIRY are themselves sober alcoholics, but we also have a solid background in tech and entrepreneurship. You can find more information under the About Us tab.
In which countries can use CAIRY?
The app will only be downloadable in Europe, with a first launch in Sweden.
It is possible for up to 4 people to attend one and the same video meeting. You choose who you invite to the meeting and what the meeting is about.
The future of recovery support will be marked by affordability, portability and flexibility to one’s personal needs
