State & Local Governments
Address opioid abatement and serve a wider audience
Opioid settlements available to state and local governments have topped $50B from pharmacies and manufacturers with the directive to spend those funds on current and future opioid abatement. InterAct creates a turnkey, efficient program to reach a larger audience in need of help and support.
Extend treatment to underserved & rural populations
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
“Between 2010 and 2017, the national rate of opioid-related inpatient stays increased by 76.3% in rural locations, from 154.3 per 100,000 population in the first quarter of 2010 to 272.1 per 100,000 population in the last quarter of 2017.”
Rural populations struggle with opioid addiction because they lack access to treatment, are reluctant to attend in-person recovery support, and are under-insured.
Reduce the current relapse rate
Psychology Today: 75% of individuals relapse in the first year after rehab treatment.
InterAct LifeLine's technology offers efficient ways to create a stronger support community, keep people involved in aftercare programs, provide structure and accountability, offer wellness education, and monitor and identify those at risk for relapse.
Reduce the number of new “initiates” in opioid and substance misuse
National Institutes of Health
“According to the 2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.5 million people ages 12 or older had misused opioids in the past year, and 2.7 million people had an opioid use disorder.” 1 in 10 adolescents will develop the disease of addiction before they leave high school.
The "SafetyNet" program uses a combination of education, connections to support and mobile outreach and monitoring to reduce substance misuse among at-risk adolescents.
Increase the number of individuals with access to treatment
National Council for Behavioral Health
"77% of counties across the country have severe shortages of behavioral health professions.”
"Medicaid is the nation's largest insurer for behavioral health services. That means the program's coverage of treatment services delivered by Telehealth dramatically increases patient access to OUD treatment.
Improve the family support process
“Research suggests that behavioral health treatment that includes family therapy works better than treatment that does not. For people with mental illness, family therapy in conjunction with individual treatment can increase medication adherence, reduce rates of relapse and re-hospitalization, reduce psychiatric symptoms, and relieve stress.”
InterAct's solution provides family education, support groups, connections to family therapists through Telehealth and better strategies to support family members that need treatment or are in recovery.
Document outcomes from analytics delivered from technology program
Data is captured every time an individual logs into the portal, opens an email, responds to a survey, views content and education or participates in a group or individual session. Data can be used to produce outcome studies and ensure that the funds from opioid abatement settlements are being used appropriately.
