There's a sober dating app called CASL, an acronym for Clean and Sober Love, that's working to help the sober community stay connected during the COVID-19 quarantine.

Joaquin Barreda, the creator of CASL and program director at a local rehab treatment center, send push notifications for live chats focusing on 12-step program inspired meetings to the nearly 25,000 world wide users of the app.

Barreda normally works with his clients in person at Mastermind Care in Coral Springs. The challenge during the coronavirus quarantine has been keeping in contact with his clients. He has been able to lead them through the 12-step program by hosting meetings in the virtual world, through the CASL app, Instagram and Facebook pages. These all help bridge the void left by COVID-19.
