Sage Neuroscience Center Launches Platform to Support Individuals in Treatment and Recovery for Substance Use Disorder

Rochester, New York and Albuquerque, NM, August 9, 2022 – CHESS Health, the leading provider of service-enabled technology supporting the addiction management and recovery lifecycle, today announced that Sage Neuroscience Center 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 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 Sage Neuroscience Center will have access to Connections app from CHESS Health and 24/7 peer support to help reduce isolation, gain motivation, build confidence, and adhere to treatment and recovery plans. Individuals can also access a suite of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) video vignettes with actors to reinforce the coping skills patients learn in therapy and from their providers.

“This is a gap in programming we’re very excited that CHESS Health can fill,” says Stephanie Turner, Program Manager at Sage Neuroscience Center.  “Our partnership with CHESS Health enables us to support individuals throughout their journey, day or night, no matter where they live.”

“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 Sage Neuroscience Center – the perfect complement to our technology.”
