New Partnership Enables CHESS Health to Support Patients throughout their Treatment Journey, including those Homebound due to the COVID-19 Pandemic
CHESS Health, the leading provider of addiction management technology, today announced its partnership with Psych Hub, the leading comprehensive platform for online education on mental health, substance use, and suicide prevention topics. This partnership enables CHESS Health to offer support resources to Substance Use Disorder (SUD) patients throughout each step of the treatment process.
“We are in uncharted waters today with the COVID-19 pandemic. Those in recovery will be faced with new obstacles as they adapt to spending more time at home and less time in 12-Step groups or outpatient treatment,” said Hans Morefield, chief executive officer of CHESS Health. “ We are thrilled to partner with Psych Hub to offer SUD patients more resources to help with recovery not just post-treatment, but now throughout their treatment journey.”
CHESS Health’s Connections App offers support to patients through smartphone access to actionable referrals, motivating and informative videos and content to break down their resistance to treatment, along with secure messaging offering support to coordinate and follow through on the referral. With the new integration with Psych Hub, SUD patients will now have access to a rapidly growing library hosting over 100 consumer-facing, animated micro-videos focused on improving mental health literacy and reducing stigma about seeking care.
“Innovation in the way we support those with substance use disorders has never been more important,” said former U.S. Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy, co-founder of Psych Hub. “We must prioritize digital connection to quality treatments and resources to facilitate long-term recovery. That’s why Psych Hub is thrilled to partner with CHESS Health to help people better understand their health care journey.”
