Beau Mann, CEO and Founder of Sober Grid, the world’s leading online sober community, today announced an official partnership with the Greater St. Louis Construction Laborers’ Welfare Fund to provide online treatment services for their members, contractors, and family members.
The partnership is a significant step forward showing a Union Member Health and Welfare Fund’s dedication to taking addiction health issues seriously. Sober Grid will provide much needed resources along with state-of-the-art technology through its partnership with the fund not only for their 4,000 members, but also to their 600 contractors and all 11,000 of the members’ covered relatives. Due to the current pandemic, many communities have seen an increase number of issues including those struggling with addiction and relapse. In order to combat this problem, Sober Grid is offering a digitally enhanced peer coaching program and 24/7 phone lifeline that eliminates the barriers to access for the nearly 16,000 available participants.
“After more than a year of unparalleled changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact we have seen it have on communities across the U.S. and the world, it is more important than ever to do all that we can to help those in need as the continued isolation shows its effect on addiction and relapse.” Mann said. “The sober community thrives on having a safe and supportive environment and through our advanced technology we are allowing our users to connect with their community for the support they need during this difficult time.”
