Brief Summary:
The long-term goal is to reduce stress and improve pain control with less opioid use in patients with sickle cell disease by promoting an intervention with self-management relaxation/distraction exercises, named You Cope, We Support (YCWS).

Sickle Cell Disease Behavioral: Self-monitoring of pain, stress, and opioid use + alerts/reminders + use of YCWS. [three video banks of RDE + Support]). Behavioral: Self-monitoring of pain, stress, and opioid use + alerts/reminders. Not Applicable

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Control Group Behavioral: Self-monitoring of pain, stress, and opioid use + alerts/reminders.
Self-monitoring of pain, stress, and opioid use + alerts/reminders.

Experimental: Experimental Group Behavioral: Self-monitoring of pain, stress, and opioid use + alerts/reminders + use of YCWS. [three video banks of RDE + Support]).
Self-monitoring of pain, stress, and opioid use + alerts/reminders + use of YCWS. [three video banks of RDE + Support]).




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Stress intensity scale [ Time Frame: Baseline through Week 8 ]
    This 3-item scale asks patients to report their current, least, and worst stress intensity in the past 24 hours, on a scale of 0 (no stress) to 10 (stress as bad as it could be)
