Pinwheel Healing Center, LLC Launches Platform to Support Individuals in Treatment and Recovery for Substance Use Disorder and Mental Health Issues

Rochester, New York and Rio Rancho, New Mexico, September 20, 2022 – CHESS Health, the leading provider of service-enabled technology supporting the addiction management and recovery lifecycle, today announced that Pinwheel Healing Center, LLC has launched the eRecovery solution to support patients combatting Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and mental health issues.  

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 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 at Pinwheel Healing Center, LLC will have access to Connections app from CHESS and 24/7 peer support to help reduce isolation, gain motivation, build confidence, and adhere to treatment and recovery plans. Individuals can also access eTherapy, a suite of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) video vignettes with actors to reinforce the coping skills patients learn in therapy and from their providers.

“The CHESS team makes implementation of the Connections App easy, they are professional, have a great capacity for follow up, and strategies for making implementation smooth.  It’s a relief to have an additional resource for clients.  CHESS Health’s strategies for addressing client crisis are on point.  It allows client to access support 24/7,” says Heidi Wahl, COO of Pinwheel Healing Center, LLC.

Pinwheel Healing Center supports individuals through a variety of programs such as Intensive Outpatient Treatment, Medically Assisted Treatment, Individual Therapy, Medication Management, Treat-First, Comprehensive Community Support Services, and Sex Offender Treatment Program.  They have locations in Albuquerque, Las Vegas, Raton, Rio Rancho, Roswell, and Taos New Mexico.

“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 Pinwheel Healing Center, LLC – the perfect complement to our technology.”
