Colorado Springs, CO, March 14, 2023 – CHESS Health, the leading provider of service-enabled technology supporting the addiction management and recovery lifecycle, today announced that Diversus Health has launched the eRecovery solution to support patients combatting Substance Use Disorder (SUD).  

The CHESS Health platform includes a comprehensive set of digital tools and tech-enabled human support, creating patient-centered care for SUD, mental health services, and social support – all easily accessible through a smartphone. The program is especially needed in the wake of increased overdose deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Individuals that receive treatment through Diversus Health will have access to the Connections app from CHESS Health and 24/7 peer support to help reduce isolation, gain motivation, build confidence, reinforce coping skills, and adhere to treatment and recovery plans.

“Having access to the Connections app will help our clients have continuous support between treatment episodes,” says Sarah Walgenbach, Director of Substance Use Disorder Programming from Diversus Health.

Individuals at Diversus Health receive high-quality mental and behavioral health care and counseling in multiple Colorado communities, one person or family at a time.  with health care services focused on assisting individuals with counseling, psychiatry, addiction, and crisis. 

“It’s essential that recovery support reaches patients where they are,” said Hans Morefield, CEO of CHESS Health.  “That means getting support tools like the Connections app in individuals’ hands as they leave treatment facilities, start outpatient care, or even pre-treatment.  We’re proud to partner with Diversus Health – the perfect complement to our technology.”
