[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Sober, Inc., a new social network, today announces the launch of its new location-based app, which allows sober users to meet other like-minded people nearby. The free, easy-to-use app offers a way to connect with new and old friends in the sober community, while offering the popular "swipe and match" feature for sober dating, pairing individuals who have "liked" one another. Sober is initially being launched in San Francisco with plans to expand to other cities later this year.
People committed to living a sober lifestyle tend to socialize and date mainly among themselves to avoid tempting and dangerous situations. Sober was born from this need for social interaction and support, offering a way to interact and date other individuals in the sober community.
According to a survey from the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids and The New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS), over 10 percent of the U.S. population is sober or in recovery from addiction. With the population's direction towards healthy lifestyles, and the rate of addiction climbing, more people are choosing to live sober. As someone who is sober himself, 21-year-old Founder and CEO Antoine Nauleau wanted to develop an app that was open to anyone living a sober life.
"Not everyone who is sober has struggled with addiction; some people make this life choice for health or personal reasons," said Nauleau. "We want to connect like-minded people to support each other, socialize, and potentially meet a romantic partner." Nauleau also shared, "This app is an opportunity, for people who have been questioning their relationship with alcohol or drugs, to explore an alternate lifestyle and meet other people who are doing the same."
