Problem Statement: “There is a clear need for the development of novel, more effective, evidence-based interventions to address the health care needs of our veterans and their family members struggling with SUDs. Efforts to overcome barriers....
...to those seeking treatment are needed so that veterans in need of services are able to access treatment and experience long-term recovery”. Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/
Business Concept Solution:
A portion of the proceeds from PROOF™ testing services purchased by employers as an alternative to their current employee testing programs, will be donated to slected nonprofits in the mental health and substance abuse recovery treatment services for military veterans space. These funds will support delivery of comprehensive addition recovery effectiveness programs to military veterans who have been diagnosed as having “co-occurring” conditions of mental health and substance use disorder (SUD). The solution will be modeled after comprehensive and evidence-based services provided to licensed health professionals using the Physicians Health Program (PHP) model. RecoveryTrek is the nation’s leading third-party administrator for PHP programs and is a SDVOSB certified business. The SUD counseling and case management services will be provided by the two non-profits.
