New continuing care service keeps alumni connected 24/7/365
TUCSON, Ariz. (January 24, 2017) – Sierra Tucson, an internationally renowned leader in behavioral and mental health care, is enhancing the recovery experience for its residents through an interactive post-treatment app. Connect365 allows participants and their support team to stay connected via a mobile device or computer following treatment completion.
In addition to the Connect365 app, the Connect365 service combines state-of-the-art technology with live support from a recovery coach for one full year after successfully completing treatment at Sierra Tucson. This comprehensive continuum of care provides the structure and accountability needed during the first 365 days of life in recovery post treatment. Connect365’s portal capabilities allow the individual’s support members and recovery coach to observe tangible behavior change, as well as detect warning signs before a relapse ensues. The Connect365 service is included in the initial cost of treatment at Sierra Tucson.
“Connect365 has the potential to dramatically change the way treatment is provided and the way people manage their recovery over the long term,” said Jaime Vinck, Sierra Tucson Chief Operations Officer. “Continuing care is a fundamental component of the treatment process and we believe the first year of recovery sets the stage for long-term success.”
Already, Connect365 is being heralded as a game-changer by Sierra Tucson and its medical and clinical staff. Since launching in 2015, Sierra Tucson has enrolled more than 700 residents into Connect365. Ninety-one percent of Connect365 participants report an improved quality of life since using the service after treatment.
“Our ultimate goal is to partner with residents in their recovery journey, and Connect365 helps to make it happen,” added Vinck.
While Connect365 has received impressive success since its launch, Sierra Tucson and its team of highly skilled medical and clinical staff are continually looking for ways to take Connect365 to the next level.
