Morse Clinic of North Raleigh Launches Platform to Support Individuals in Treatment and Recovery for Substance Use Disorder
Rochester, New York and Raleigh, NC, August 9, 2022 – CHESS Health, the leading provider of service-enabled technology supporting the addiction management and recovery lifecycle, today announced that Morse Clinic of North Raleigh has launched the eRecovery solution to support patients combatting Substance Use Disorder (SUD).
The CHESS platform includes a comprehensive set of digital tools and tech-enabled human support, creating patient-centered care for SUD, mental health services, and social supports – all easily accessible through a smartphone. The program is especially needed in the wake of increased overdose deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Individuals at Morse Clinic of North Raleigh receiving medication-assisted treatment (MAT) will have access to Connections app from CHESS and 24/7 peer support help them reduce isolation, gain motivation, build confidence, and adhere to their treatment and recovery plan.
“Our partnership with CHESS enables us to support individuals throughout their journey, day or night, no matter where they live,” said Eric Morse, MD, addiction psychiatrist and founder of the Morse Clinics – a group of Opioid Treatment Programs surrounding the Triangle in North Carolina. “Despite outstanding counseling, nursing, and doctoring at the Morse Clinics, with the rise of fentanyl, treating opioid use disorder has become more challenging than ever. We have to partner with other treatment agencies, community resources, and technologies. We all need to work together, come out of our silos, and try new things to fight this deadly epidemic. We are truly honored to partner with CHESS Health.”
“It’s essential that recovery support reach 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 Morse Clinic of North Raleigh – the perfect complement to our technology.”
