US HealthCenter to Offer First-of-its-Kind Digital Addiction Recovery Solution as Part of its Wellness Platform
Interactive Support via Freedom 365 Virtual Recovery System™ Puts Tools in the Palm of Your Hand
FAIRFIELD, N.J. AND THIENSVILLE, W.I.; — Dec. 13, 2018 — The founders of Freedom 365 Virtual Recovery System™ today announced that their first-of-its-kind digital addiction recovery solution is now available to over 200,000 members as part of US HealthCenter’s (USHC) wellness platform, PredictiMed™. Freedom 365 puts recovery tools in the palm of your hand, effectively removing the intimidation factor with an easy-to-use interface, engaging videos, and other content to address the behavior patterns that could hamper addiction recovery.
“People are losing their lives to addiction,” said US HealthCenter President & CEO, Gavin Quinnies. “Clearly, we need to address addiction more effectively and from various angles. Freedom 365 fills a void in addiction recovery providing 24/7, 365 days of support with a personal recovery guide to help recovering addicts stay on course. It’s a springboard for better living.”
Freedom 365 was developed by Brian McAlister, a nationally recognized recovery expert and best-selling author on addiction and recovery with 28 years of personal sobriety. McAlister’s frustration with diminishing access to affordable, quality addiction recovery services inspired him to create Freedom 365 Virtual Recovery System™. The interactive system includes a 28-day kick starter program to set the foundation for one’s personal recovery program, plus over 500 searchable videos to help interrupt negative thinking patterns and habits, and a full suite of long-term relapse-prevention tools. This comprehensive content is currently unavailable elsewhere or otherwise unaffordable.
“Addiction destroys lives and tears apart families, yet access to affordable addiction resources has become increasingly rare,” noted McAlister. “This is about putting support in places where people could easily access it. Freedom 365 aims to expand access to the millions of people in need by eliminating barriers like high cost, need for insurance, personal privacy concerns, and time away from family, career and personal obligations.”
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), addiction is a $520 billion-dollar problem in the United States, which affects one in five Americans. An estimated 72,000+ Americans died from drug overdoses in 2017.
Freedom 365 will be integrated into USHC’s PredictiMed™ technology platform to assist members who may be at risk for addiction or are currently in recovery. USHC’s mission is to improve people’s health and reduce healthcare costs by providing industry-leading health management tools, such as PredictiMed™. The platform offers a Personal Health Dashboard™ (PHD) that takes into account lifestyle choices, disease, medications, biometrics, genetics, readiness to change, and more, in order to predict future health concerns for individuals.
Data analytics is key to US HealthCenter’s approach. The company identifies employees who are at risk of a health crisis within three years, a proven timeframe in which they are most motivated to make meaningful changes. This is concrete support that insurance companies don’t typically provide.
“Using a data-driven, pro-active wellness approach, we have reduced employer healthcare costs by 25% to 30%,” noted Quinnies. “A powerful disease-avoidance program promotes next-generation affordable healthcare for every employee and their family.”
About US HealthCenter
In the last 15 years, the healthcare industry has been struggling to implement wellness and disease maintenance. At US HealthCenter, we believe that pre-disease preventive care and follow up maintenance require proficient analytics and well trained, certified health professionals working in concert with traditional direct medical providers and the participant in a predictive, personalized Wholeistic™ approach. US HealthCenter is one of the few vendors that provide services in pre-disease, disease, and post-disease periods, and focuses on participation and adhesion to the health management programs resulting in great savings for our customers.
