Advances in Technology in the Addiction Profession: The Power of Peers in an App for Tele-Addiction Recovery Support
This webinar is sponsored by MAP Health Management.
Recorded on Wednesday, August 4, 2021
A Recorded Webinar
Peers are a vital piece of the care support system and are not always utilized appropriately. Telehealth provides great opportunities to expand the utilization of peers and leverage their lived experiences of addiction and recovery. When done correctly, peers and care coordination efforts provided in a digital health app can enhance the care system, increase motivation and engagement in addiction recovery services, and improve the overall health and well-being of individuals, families, and communities.
Matt DeMasi, MA, is a behavioral health professional with a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University. He heads care delivery and clinical efforts at Halcyon Health, which offers addiction recovery support for people at all stages of their recovery. His passion lies in enacting significant positive change in behavioral health care delivery and increasing access to services for those in need of help. He is always open to discussing anything related to mental health and addiction. DeMasi believes that recovery is possible and achievable when people feel supported and empowered in their care.
