Solution from CHESS Health provides 24/7 peer support in New Mexico
Albuquerque, New Mexico, April 18, 2023 – CHESS Health, the leading provider of evidence-based digital health solutions for substance use disorder (SUD), announced today that Duke City Recovery Toolbox (DCRT), has launched eRecovery to support patients with SUD.
Individuals in treatment and recovery will now have access via their smartphones to a team of certified peer recovery digital support specialists and a robust set of tools, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The program is especially needed in the wake of increased overdose deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic and heavy fentanyl use in the state. CHESS Health’s eRecovery solution, which includes the Connections app, helps individuals reduce isolation, build confidence and adhere to a treatment and recovery plan.
DCRT in Albuquerque, New Mexico is a unique resource for individuals and their families struggling with substance use disorder and addiction. DCRT is an accredited outpatient clinic that offers integrated addiction recovery services and mental health services, including medication, individual and/or family counseling and spiritual support (if desired) as well as medical care for patients receiving medication treatment.
“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 the team at Duke City Recovery Toolbox – the perfect complement to our technology.”
