We are proud to work with premier treatment facilities and professionals who believe in the importance of structure, connection, and accountability for a successful recovery from Alcohol Use Disorder. Read our case studies with our partners to learn more about how Soberlink's remote alcohol monitoring system has helped client's on their recovery journey.
Dr. Michael Tkach, Director of Recovery Management for Hazelden Betty Ford works with the Connection™ Program, a personalized, intensive recovery coaching experience for people in early recovery. “Obtaining sobriety is often the first success in recovery, and thriving in recovery becomes a string of successes, engaging in supports, and experiencing improved quality of life that continues to unfold throughout the recovery journey, which is a life-long process,” explains Dr. Tkach. To achieve this string of successes, their team implemented Soberlink which "helps our participants stay accountable, building trust back with their loved ones, and ultimately helping to create lasting sobriety," says Jenna Koski, Connection Program Manager.
Ryan Miller, Director of Alumni Services at Futures Recovery Healthcare discusses how consistent monitoring for long-term personal accountability has been vital to success in addiction recovery. “Early intervention is key when clients are showing signs of struggle,” expresses Ryan Miller. Futures wanted to be able to “quickly provide additional support to someone in need. For Futures to directly provide a service that aids in personal accountability, we feel it further strengthens our ability to support clients and their families.”
Jesse Harlan, Chief Operating Officer at Avenues NYC found that post treatment aftercare is associated with significantly lower rates of relapse. “Since we began using Soberlink in 2017,” says Jesse, “we have had multiple incidents where a client’s sent BAC report has been the catalyst for added support. With Soberlink, we are able to see when a slip happens in real-time and then collaborate with a client’s treatment team to quickly and safely stabilize a client. Soberlink has afforded us many opportunities to support our clients in new and effective ways.”
Ward Blanchard, Founder and CEO of Blanchard Institute explains how the prevalence of alcohol presents a problem for people in recovery from Alcohol use Disorder. “Alcohol is such a prevalent part of our culture,” says Ward Blanchard, Founder and CEO of The Blanchard Institute. “This makes it impossible for clients to avoid triggers in the same way they may be able to do with other substances... There have been quite a number of instances where Soberlink has helped us shorten a window of recurrent use and intervene to connect our clients with needed supports to get back on track with sobriety."
Dr. Kieran Ayre or Ayre Counseling discovered that “An enormous disconnect exists between the point of care when the provider conducts an assessment and offers intervention during the clinical encounter, and the “point of choice,” when the patient decides to drink or not to drink in real-time." Because of this, he implemented Soberlink to "allow us to intervene immediately with patients and their families,” says. Dr. Ayre. “Since we can respond in real-time, transgressions, slips, and return to use episodes tend to be briefer and with fewer extreme consequences.”
