Lifespan Health Launches Platform to Support Individuals in Treatment and Recovery for Behavioral Health and Substance Use Disorder
Solution from CHESS Health provides 24/7 peer support in Tennessee
Savannah, Tennessee, April 11, 2023 – CHESS Health, the leading provider of evidence-based digital health solutions for behavioral health and substance use disorder (SUD), announced today that Hardin County Regional Health Center dba Lifespan Health, has launched CHESS Health’s eRecovery solution to support its patients.
Individuals in treatment and recovery for behavioral health and SUD 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. CHESS Health’s eRecovery solution, which includes the Connections app, helps individuals reduce isolation, build confidence and adhere to a treatment and recovery plan.
“We are excited about our partnership with CHESS Health, which will enable us to support our patients in recovery,” said Y. T. “Janie” McGinley, Chief Executive Officer of Lifespan Health.
“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 Lifespan Health – the perfect complement to our technology.”
Lifespan Health has 6 locations located in Savannah, Clifton, Adamsville, and Selmer, TN. Lifespan is committed to being involved in the communities they serve. They support activities that lead to a healthy community and align with their mission as a community health center.
