Freedom 365 is a 24-hour recovery companion that provides 365 days of state-of-the-art addiction recovery and relapse-prevention support anywhere, anytime. Freedom 365 is available for use on smartphones, tablets, and desktops computers. It is both an alternative and a supplement to current short-term care that generally comes at a price of $30,000 to $100,000.
According to its creator, Brian McAlister, a nationally acclaimed recovery expert and No.1 best-selling author on addiction and recovery with 28 years of personal sobriety, “I created Freedom 365, the first-of-its-kind digital addiction recovery support tool, because current solutions are failing. We have 1 in 5 Americans (National Institute on Drug Abuse) who suffer from addiction, yet only 4% are receiving the help they need (National Council on Alcohol and Drug Addiction).”
Freedom 365 has the potential to impact multiple stakeholders: employers, corrections institutions, veterans, healthcare providers, insurers/payers and universities. It expands access while providing cost-containment solutions and has become increasingly attractive to insurance, benefits and wellness brokers as they seek to focus on preventative care and wellness initiatives.
