Not motivating enough/No time restriction for completing steps
Step Away is a program that is most suitable for users who are dealing with mild to moderate problems with alcohol. The app is informative and provides good-quality content. The assessments and feedback contribute to maintaining users’ motivation to complete the program. On the downside, although the developers recommend completing the program in three months, there is no limitation on content availability. For example, the recommendation to do one step a day could be missed and the user could easily complete the steps in one day. Furthermore, the program lacks some motivational features that could inspire users toward goal achievement.
Notes for Clinicians
Step Away could be a suitable supplement to treatment for patients dealing with problem drinking. The program can supplement some of the informational aspects of the treatment and assist with tracking the patient’s progress.
