Journal Writing

The Journal for Recovery software features a Journal Explorer for organizing, filtering and reviewing your journal entries and a rich-text editor for editing your journals and metadata.


The Prompt Explorer organizes the questions, quotes, book passages that you find inspiring and positive for your life. It is pre-populated with 12 step questions and recovery quotes and book passages.

Share Your Stories

Exporting and importing of journals, prompts and templates uses an open format. Easily share journals with appropriate people or publicly share prompts and templates via this website. 

Password Secured

Your journals are only visible after you log in. The initial passwords are blank, but you can easily modify the passwords so that your journals will remain private and secure.


All of the journals and prompts are protected with a strongly encrypted database that uses the same AES-256 bit encryption that is used by banks and government agencies.


Metadata is used to classify, organize and filter your journals and prompts. Metadata includes categories for journals and prompts as well as journal and prompt types.
