Freedom 365 Launches on CoreHealth Technologies’ Corporate Wellness Platform
New Partnership Expands Substance Use Education and Recovery to Millions of Employees Globally
FAIRFIELD, N.J. — May 19, 2020 — The founders of Freedom 365 – Virtual Recovery System™ are pleased to announce the availability of its virtual substance use recovery program on the CoreHealth Technologies Wellness Platform.
CoreHealth has become the leading corporate wellness platform trusted by over 1,000 organizations. From medium-sized businesses to Fortune 500 companies, CoreHealth is currently serving over 2 million employees worldwide. Freedom 365 will be integrated into Corehealth’s technology platform to assist members who may be at risk for addiction or are currently in recovery.
Coronavirus is expected to have long lasting side effects beyond financial challenges. Depression, anxiety and substance abuse are thriving in these uncertain times. According to Nielsen, alcoholic beverage sales shot up 55% in the third week of March compared to the same time a year ago and online sales are up a whopping 243% since the quarantine began.
“It’s no surprise people are self-medicating to deal with the stress and anxiety,” said Brian McAlister CEO of Freedom 365. “It is estimated that workers with substance use disorder are up to 35% less productive and it goes without saying that they use significantly more healthcare benefits. Forward thinking companies are wisely investing in their employee’s behavioral health. Our partnership with CoreHealth will increase access to substance use education and recovery support to millions of employees worldwide,” McAlister continued.
Freedom 365 takes the content and activities of a rehabilitation program and puts it into an interactive digital experience that can be accessed privately from any digital device.
“It’s all about bridging the gap between high-cost, inconvenient treatment programs and getting NO addiction recovery support at all,” said McAlister. “Our integration with CoreHealth gives employees an opportunity to get a full education on substance use disorder and what “recovery” looks like without publicly “outing” themselves,” he added.
“The need has never been greater,” according to John Dyck, Relationship Manager at CoreHealth Technologies. Integrating Freedom 365 into CoreHealth’s comprehensive wellness platform expands access to the millions of people in need of substance use help by eliminating barriers like high cost, need for insurance, personal privacy concerns, and time away from family, career and personal obligations. We’re excited that we can now offer a comprehensive program of addiction recovery to the millions of clients we serve.”
CoreHealth Technologies was founded in 2004 to bring the art of design and the power of technology together in new and inspiring ways to help people find their own path to wellness by living healthy lifestyles. Since then, CoreHealth has become the leading corporate wellness platform trusted by over 1,000 organizations. From medium-sized businesses to Fortune 500 companies, serving over 2 million employees worldwide in multiple languages, CoreHealth is now the standard delivery platform for wellness programs. CoreHealth is committed to helping wellness companies deliver the most engaging workplace wellness programs to their clients.
