For individuals recovering from using substances like alcohol, a new kind of technology-enabled recovery system is helping to improve treatment in Louisiana and Texas. This kind of enhanced recovery treatment is making a positive difference in the lives of patients at Longbranch Healthcare in Louisiana and Solutions Outpatient Services in Dallas, Texas.
Every year in the United States, more than 1.6 million people enter addiction treatment, with dismal results. More than half fail to complete treatment, with more than 24% dropping out of treatment altogether. [i]
Austin-based company ViviHealth is changing that.
Among the breakthrough technology developed by ViviHealth is an integrated patient insight system called Vivi360. Vivi360 combines clinical dashboards and a smartphone app that employ a range of technological advances, such as wearable health monitors (like a Fitbit), pocket blood-alcohol content monitoring, machine learning and artificial intelligence, all based on decades of addiction research. Coinciding with this technology is the recent ramp-up of remote monitoring and telehealth in addiction treatment facilities across the country.
Using the Vivi360 Recovery Solution
Over the last decade, addiction treatment providers like Longbranch Healthcare and Solutions Outpatient Services have expanded their range of services to include improvements to remote monitoring, spurred on by the opportunity to better serve the needs of their patients.
“We’ve been on the lookout for new ways to provide better treatment to our clients suffering from addiction,” says Longbranch’s Emily Meyers. “Vivi360 was a perfect fit. The technology allows our clinicians to have real-time insight into the condition and activity of clients, which is helping us provide lasting recovery care to our clients.”
At Solutions Outpatient Services in Dallas, owner Lois Jordan shares a similar sentiment: “The Vivi360 system gives us ongoing and relevant insight into how patients are doing. It has helped us provide a safe and healing space for our clients and their families.”
Longbranch Healthcare and Solutions Outpatient Services have been piloting Vivi360 for their intensive outpatient programs. Patients use the system by wearing a health device combined with a smartphone application called ViviCompanion. The application provides personal insights, self-care content, and connection to supporters, and can even be used by the patient after they complete treatment.
Longbranch serves Louisianans suffering from substance use disorders and Solutions serves those in the Dallas area.
Improving Recovery Care
For the millions of people nationwide suffering under the growing weight of addiction, technology-enhanced care made possible by solutions like ViviHealth could not be more important. Improving recovery care at treatment centers like Solutions Outpatient Services is part of ViviHealth’s mission of improving and saving the lives of those in recovery.
Chris Lawless, co-founder and CEO of ViviHealth states the mission plainly: “We exist to make life-saving technology available to recovery clinics, so that they can better fulfill their mission of supporting and caring for those in recovery.”
Longbranch Healthcare in Metairie and Abita Springs, Louisiana is a system of substance abuse and co-occurring disorder treatment services whose mission is to provide an educational and experiential foundation for long-term recovery by empowering individuals and their families to find health and peace of mind.
