Substance Abuse Programs in Meriden Adopt Mobile T
- Aug. 1, 2018
-- Substance abuse programs in Meriden, Connecticut are beginning to use a new mobile system designed to assist patients in their communication with practitioners and prevent relapse.
The product called TryCycle Data Systems sets up a simple channel for patients and their doctors in between drug addiction treatment appointments. It is a lifeline between the two and lets the patient have someone to speak with when their addiction cravings are rearing up.
The company has two offices in Canada recently it established its headquarters at the University of Connecticut Health (UConn Health). They have have implementing their systems in drug abuse programs in Old Saybrook and Meriden.
"TryCycle was designed as a system, not as an app," said John MacBeth, the president, CEO and co-founder of TryCycle Data Systems. "We use an app but it's a very innocuous piece of the overall initiative."
TryCycle originated in 2012, in a meeting where MacBeth and his partner Ken House pondered what could be done to help people struggling with opioid use disorders. They realized that a patients recovery from addiction started with human contact and knew that with the correct technology, the proper channels could be formed to create this interaction.
From there, TryCycle was born, an interactive database between patients and doctors.https://www.drugaddictionnow.com/2018/08/01/substance-abu...
