Sobertech announced today the launch of its new platform Pobal, an on-demand addiction recovery education ecosystem. Featuring two apps, Ascent and Arc, Pobal provides evidence-based treatment education, community engagement and accountability. Today, only 10% of those who need Substance Use Disorder treatment receive any services via traditional inpatient or outpatient programs. The treatment industry, with high costs, limited availability, and questionable outcomes, continues to lack a scalable and cost-effective intervention for the country’s number one behavioral health problem. With an easy-to-use interface and flexible elearning modules, Pobal provides the lowest barrier of entry for those dipping their toes in recovery.
Pobal Pro enables practitioners to efficiently serve a broader range of clients at various phases in their recovery journey. Fully customizable curricula allow providers to design their own programs. The built-in continual assessment engine delivers practitioners deeper insights into their clients’ consumption, comprehension and internalization of the content. The self-guided treatment education is billable to insurance with accredited provider oversight.
“Personal growth and healing are at the core of our recovery programs. I’m proud to be a part of helping others on their journey with the release of our new treatment tools and support designed to get mindfully fit.” – Terence Lundy, Pobal Founder and CEO
