Break The Cycle

Over 85 percent of people in recovery relapse within the first year of treatment. In most cases, it is because they haven’t reached out for support or know where to go to receive the support they need before relapsing. The Restart App is created by recovering addict, Chris Hagidiakow, who spent years in and out of jail due largely to his addiction to drugs and committing crimes. After years of struggling he finally accepted that the best path to recovery was to have a true support system in place. After many years of research and experience he has assembled all the different professional resources, wellness centres and healthy experiences available to everyone seeking recovery and hoping to maintain it.

“Restart is dedicated to building a community of people who can connect and support each other in their recovery process. Individuals who download the ReSTART APP begin their journey to a better life by sharing their story and realizing that they are not alone.”

The Restart APP is a resource guide which connects you with services from education, treatment and employment availabilities to wellness and spiritual centers within your area. Restart also highlights many free activities from biking, hiking, running, yoga and more at different venues and centers within your radius. Restart founder, Chris, who today runs a sober living home for addicts recently released from jail or mental health facilities, credits his recovery to the people and support systems he allowed into his life. In his own words, “I understand what it is like to feel as if there is no hope and things will not change. I have struggled with what you are going through. I am here to tell you that people do care. Restart is my way of giving back and guiding you to a life of fulfillment.” Download the Restart APP for free today on either Iphone or Android and take the next step to recovery and a better you.


A trigger can be derivative of life chances, trauma, intrinsic or extrinsic power imbalances that cause irrational behaviours and poor decisions, ultimately leading to a reaction.


Reactions to triggers are the purpose of this app. Whether one's reaction can be breaking the law, experimenting with drugs, developing an eating disorder, or battling a mental illness, among many others.


Consequences of the challenges in one's life, whether it be incarceration,  addiction, mental illness or others, there is usually a turning point where recovery becomes the goal.
