It was a great day at the Ascent headquarters! Today, we had the pleasure of welcoming many of our peer recovery coaches to our offices for a meet and greet. Everyone had the opportunity to share their story and how excited they are to get started with Ascent.
For anyone who doesn’t already know, Ascent is an addiction recovery solution that is launching this month. Ascent combines 24/7/365 support from these amazing peer coaches with a cutting-edge mobile app. This means that anyone who has completed addiction treatment with a rehabilitation facility can obtain access to the solution in order to avoid relapse and stay on the road to recovery. At Ascent, there are two things that we always say. “Recovery happens in a space, not a place.” And “Recovery is a lifetime.”
With the 24/7 assistance of these passionate peer recovery coaches, everyone using the Ascent solution will have the support they need, when they need it, right at their fingertips. Not only does the Ascent service have the capability to save countless lives, but it also can be utilized by treatment centers everywhere in order to ensure that their clients remain on the road to recovery, long after they have completed treatment.
The features and benefits of the solution can be seen here. In short, Ascent users will be able to set and track goals, message and talk with peer coaches, receive encouraging and informational content, geo-target temptation spots so that the app can notify him/her to avoid them and take daily surveys to prevent relapse. There is even a “Beacon” button for a user to press if they feel like they are going to use, which notifies their coach/support group immediately. This service is truly revolutionary and the possibilities for improving recovery are endless.
We feel blessed to have such amazing peer recovery coaches working for Ascent and look forward to writing the next chapter in addiction recovery. Be sure to check back here often as we continue to grow and provide our solution to additional treatment organizations.
2016 is going to be an exciting year for the recovery industry!
