My employer, RecoveryTrek, has become the nation's fastest-growing third-party administrator for licensed professionals substance abuse monitoring and testing programs.  For some time now, the company has been developing a new concept to bring the solutions that help licensed professionals recover from substance abuse and get their careers back on track.  RecoveryTrek is now announcing a new product to help these professionals (and other folks as well) to Stay on Track.  Any wonder why RecoveryTrek's corporate slogan is "Stay on Track"?  Here are the details....

....and don't just take my word for it, read below what the top people at RecoveryTrek have to say about the company's new product and service for helping people Stay on Track once they have managed through an evidence-based RecoveryTrek’s new CareTrek program features state-of-the-art, proven relapse prevention tools for participants that want to maintain sobriety following discharge from a substance use disorder treatment facility or program.   

 In a frequently cited study published in 2009 by the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment the authors indicate that “SUDs, (Substance Abuse Disorders), are chronic illnesses that are best managed with ongoing care just as are other serious, chronic illnesses. Specifically, acute care-oriented, short-term approaches have little evidence of long-term success in the treatment of SUDs. There are many novel ways of extending formal care…” Accordingly, and at the request of a significant number of facility and monitoring program graduates, RecoveryTrek established basic services for individuals in July of 2012.  

Today, after five years of beta-testing and development, RecoveryTrek is pleased to announce its new CareTrek continuing care program. This newly designed program incorporates all of the best practice features provided to individuals in the beta test program plus all of the new, mobile features available now in their MobileTrek companion application such as mobile check-in for drug testing, breathalyzer testing, communication systems, and GPS & facial tracked check-In’s at facilities, therapy sessions and/or community based recovery meetings. CareTrek is supported by RecoveryTrek’s success management support staff and allows the participant to share results securely with members of their own support team known as their TrekCircle – (EX: spouse, doctor, therapist, sponsor, family member, clergy member, and/or close friend).  

Kirk Cizerle, Chief Executive Officer and founder of RecoveryTrek, had this to say when asked about the program, “We kept getting calls from participants who were anxious about relapsing after they were discharged from treatment. They’d worked hard to replace their dependence on drugs and alcohol with new behaviors and were happy with their life in recovery. They’d become accustomed to our systems, had trusted relationships with our staff and they liked the way that random drug testing kept them accountable. They didn’t want to risk losing it all after they were discharged. We understood their concern and wanted to help. The CareTrek program is a natural solution and we’re grateful for the opportunity to be of service to them and their families.” 

In recognition of this new program, RecoveryTrek has announced the TrekAward promotion. Active CareTrek participants who refer a new CareTrek participant are eligible to receive a $50 TrekAward credit on their account when the newly referred participant remains enrolled and relapse-free in the CareTrek program for a minimum of 6 months. [Terms & Conditions apply.]  For more information about the CareTrek continuing care relapse prevention and successful recovery regimen. This new product is called CareTrek.

So, if you or someone you know and care about are in need of an evidence-based substance abuse recovery solution or need a way to stay on track after getting through recovery, give RecoveryTrek a call!
