8 Best Sober Dating Apps for People in Recovery

Dating Without Drugs and Alcohol

It can be challenging to use online dating sites and find other people who don’t drink or use drugs. Over 70% of people on top dating apps drink, and many will propose a first date that involves drinking alcohol over a sober date, believing that booze will calm their nerves and break the ice. For people in the sober community who are looking to meet sober singles or are aiming for a sober relationship, this statistic can feel disheartening.

If you are looking to try recovery dating in the recovery community, you are much more likely to find a good match or at least a fun sober date if you use sober dating apps over the usual big names like Tinder, Bumble, OkCupid, Grindr or eHarmony.

Sober Dating Apps for People Who Are in Recovery

Some of the top dating apps clean and sober people prefer to use to meet other sober single people include:

Loosid App

The Loosid sober dating app is free, and welcomes all sober singles, offering suggestions for sober events to attend in your area, and providing a free hotline for sobriety tips

Clean and Sober Love

The (CASL) App for sober singles is free to download, and you can pay for a premium ad-free subscription. This app has 22,000 users and a Tinder-like interface, allowing you to swipe right or left on prospective fellow singles


This is not a completely sober app but still shows up as one of the recommended sober dating apps because there is the option to specify whether you drink in your profile, making it easier to filter through potential matches. This is a free app with additional features available if you purchase a paid subscription


Sober Grid’s functionality is more of a social space than the many sober dating sites, but it enables sober individuals in the same location to find and support one another, with the potential for friendships or a love connection. This is a free app with additional fees for peer coaching services


This is not solely a dating app for sober people but its user base is people focused on living a healthy lifestyle, which intersects with many sober people’s interests. This app is one of the costlier options, but it allows you to find a specific type of a person if you are looking for someone who suits your healthy lifestyle

Love in Recovery

This sobriety app was created to help its user base find love with other single and sobers in their area. It is free to browse and create a profile, but you must buy a membership to interact with others

12 Step Match

Known as one of the original dating apps for people who are in recovery, this app allows you to filter matches by age, location, gender, and recovery program (i.e. AA vs NA). Membership does not cost anything but you must purchase a subscription to message anybody

Single and Sober

This is one of the top apps for dating sober as it has been designed to help users find healthy and loving relationships without the drama added by substance abuse. This app is free to browse, but there is a fee if you want to participate and interact with others

With these apps, you can go on dates with others who do not drink alcohol, and you may have better overall dating experiences that do not involve substances. Even if you are sober curious, you may find dating from a sober dating pool will yield more authentic first impressions.
