Soberlink is here to enhance your mission by offering a reliable, user-friendly tool that supports your clients’ journey beyond the structured treatment environment. The best part?

What is Soberlink?

The Soberlink system tracks your client’s alcohol levels throughout the day with a discreet and portable breathalyzer. To ease concerns about the accuracy of the results, Soberlink includes key features like facial recognition and sensors that detect tamper attempts. The BAC readings are instantly sent to you, the treatment provider, and to your client's loved ones via text or email to rebuild trust.

Alcohol Monitoring: Aligned with Your Continued Care Objectives

Referring clients to alcohol monitoring is a natural extension of your commitment to their well-being. It empowers clients to remain accountable, building on the solid foundation you have helped them build.

After treatment for Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD), many face the risk of relapse, with studies showing that 40 to 60 percent of individuals may experience a relapse at some point in their recovery journey. This is not much different from the relapse rates of other chronic conditions like diabetes or asthma, emphasizing that substance use disorders require ongoing management just like any other chronic illness​​​​.

Why Soberlink?

Many people try to hide their drinking from loved ones post-treatment, driven by a desire to protect them from disappointment or by loved ones' hopes that treatment was a definitive solution. This situation creates a dangerous environment where relapses can occur unnoticed, providing a false sense of security to both the recovering individual and their support network. It's crucial to have a monitoring system in place that is robust and difficult to circumvent to maintain the safety and progress of recovery.

Soberlink addresses these concerns directly by leveraging advanced technology to prevent and catch test manipulations, such as using air pumps, having another person blow, or physically altering the device. Soberlink’s features, including facial recognition and tamper detection, ensure that the person being tested is indeed the one providing the sample. This system not only supports individuals in maintaining their sobriety but also allows families and friends to be active participants in the recovery process without being misled by false assurances.

Implementing Soberlink doesn't require additional work from treatment providers. It's as simple as referring clients to sign up, bridging the gap between treatment and daily life, and ensuring that recovery is a sustainable, long-term process. With Soberlink, the hard work of treatment providers is reinforced, prioritizing safety, accountability, and invaluable peace of mind for both recovering individuals and their loved ones.
