Addiction treatment is quickly moving toward personalized care and insights that specifically meet the individual needs of the person in recovery. Recent advances in treatment coupled with advances in technology and remote monitoring capabilities allow providers to truly personalize care and even predict and prevent recurrence. This webinar will help you examine your relapse prediction capabilities and identify opportunities to implement technology that can assist your care.


Jes Montgomery, MD, has worked in addiction for over 30 years as well as practices recovery from a personal and family perspective. The foundational concept for ViviHealth’s solutions is the result of a 15-year search for objective ways to engage recovery beyond simply detecting relapse. He has advocated for innovative and new approaches to fundamentally change how recovery treatment is accomplished. Montgomery received his Doctoral degree from Louisiana State University School of Medicine and attained certification in the American Society on Addiction Medicine in 1987. He is a diplomat of both the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and the American Board of Addiction Medicine and has worked in the treatment of addiction since 1987. Montgomery has served as lead psychiatrist and medical director of nationally known treatment providers, including Sante Center for Healing, Pine Grove Behavioral and Addictions, and Serenity View Recovery Center. He maintains a limited private practice of psychiatry and addiction medicine.
