The My Quit Route app complies with National Centre for Smoking Cessation Training (NCSCT) guidance. It can be used as a stand-alone intervention or as continuous, on demand behavioural support in combination therapy with NRT, medication or e-cigarettes.
Commissioners of My Quit Route receive real-time data analytics, including the key metric of successful quit attempts, via an online dashboard.
This comprehensive digital solution reduces alcohol-related harm on a population-wide scale through prevention and early intervention.
It allows people to self-assess their current drinking in multiple languages at their own convenience and receive instant feedback on the potential health risks this presents. It then seamlessly delivers the precise level of intervention each individual needs to reduce their alcohol use to safer levels, which for most will be through self-management:
Positive reinforcement (lower risk)
Brief intervention and advice (increasing risk)
Extended brief intervention (higher risk)
Signposting to local specialist alcohol services (possibly dependent)
The extended brief intervention in Lower My Drinking is a fully personalised 4-week programme accessible 24/7 via an app on Android and iOS devices. This allows people to track their drinking and use evidence-based behaviour change techniques to address the underlying issues that are motivating them to drink too much.
Lower My Drinking enables Public Health teams and CCGs to drive efficiencies, provide 24/7 access to clinically-robust intervention pathways, and target hard-to-reach populations by overcoming key barriers to treatment such as stigma, language and lack of access to effective support.
Commissioners of Lower My Drinking receive an online dashboard that provides real-time data analytics and valuable insights into patterns of alcohol use across their locality, so enabling resources to be targeted more effectively.
