Founded by Vendant Pradeep and Ziyi Gao, Georgia Tech graduates and Inno under 25 honourees, Reframe is an app that offers content that includes interactive activities, recovery stories, affirmations and education tools to help people come out of alcoholism. The app has about 3,000 users. 

The co-founders developed the app after interacting with and taking lessons from Emory University and Johns Hopkins University medical experts and Georgia Tech professors who spoke with more than 500 people at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. According to the startup, “Reframe is the culmination of years of suffering, recovery, research and technology”. 

Reframe charges its users less than US$ 10 per month. The startup claims that using the app is a fraction of the amount spent on recovery centres, which makes it accessible to more people battling alcoholism.

What the founders have to say: “We want it to be such an experience that people are looking forward to it. As much as it is a medical problem, it’s also a social problem. We want to make it so acceptable that it’s trendy. Ideally, we want people who are passionate about this space and want to help others quit drinking or cut back.” — Vedant Pradeep, co-founder and president of Reframe.
