Sober Grid’s CEO, Beau Mann spoke on a panel Wednesday morning at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Conference: National Conference on Health Communication, Marketing, and Media. Sober Grid has had success in the addiction recovery space, growing its application to over 130,000 downloads and its recent purchase of Ascent, a 24/7 peer coaching service.
Mann highlighted Sober Grid’s success in the space as well as plans for the future. Sober Grid’s recent acquisition of ASCENT allows the largest mobile addiction recovery community access to 24/7 peer recovery coaching. Peer recovery coaching benefits are well documented and include: reduction in ER visits, hospital days , re-hospitalizations, recidivism and clients are more engaged in treatment and have better whole health.
“I am honored to be a panelist at the Center for Disease Control’s 2018 National Conference on Health Communication, Marketing, and Media, speaking on Innovations in Healthcare. As we see new epidemics like the Opioid epidemic take its toll on America it is important to work together to communicate the problem and solutions and to help innovate to alleviate diseases,”Mann said.
