Connections App.

The Connections app, available in English and Spanish, is a core component of the eRecovery solution.

This evidence-based smartphone app reinforces coping and recovery skills to help individuals adhere to their treatment plan and stay in recovery.

The CHESS Connections app helps patients build healthy habits, reduce isolation, and celebrate achievements. The foundation of a robust virtual community, the app is staffed by certified peer recovery specialists who have lived experience in SUD, offer 24/7 support, and moderate lively discussion groups and video support meetings to create meaningful engagement and dialogue.

Behavioral health providers can use the Connections app to send secure messages, set appointment reminders, and follow their patients’ progress. The platform also includes CBT for Recovery programs, allowing individuals to access bite-sized training on an as-needed basis.


Conexiones offers dedicated support for the Latinx communities who face additional challenges accessing recovery resources. The new Conexiones app is designed with these communities in mind, and includes culturally appropriate content written by native Spanish speakers and personalized attention through in-language peer support.

Analytics Dashboard

The CHESS Dashboard is the care management functionality accompanying the Connections App – clinicians, counselors, case managers, and recovery coaches use the dashboard to track and engage their patients and members.

Capabilities of the CHESS Dashboard include: onboarding, 1:1 and group messaging, 1:1 and group video calls (CHESS Video), recovery monitoring, reminder tracking, content management, and more. EHR and single sign-on (SSO) integration is also supported.
