Breaking Free Group’s clinically-effective digital programme for alcohol and drug dependence, Breaking Free from Substance Use, has been endorsed by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
NICE has granted this endorsement because the content of Breaking Free from Substance Use supports implementation of the recommendations in its public health guidelines on individual approaches to behaviour change (PH49) and general approaches to behaviour change (PH6).
Breaking Free Group was invited by the International Corrections and Prisons Association (ICPA) to present at their 2nd Correctional Research Symposium, held in Prague.
Dr Sarah Elison-Davies, Research Director at Breaking Free Group, presented clinical outcomes from the evaluation of our Breaking Free from Substance Use (Justice) programme in UK prisons. Her presentation also explained the approach taken to evaluating these outcomes, which was informed by the UK Medical Research Council’s framework for developing and evaluating complex interventions.
Breaking Free Group has been appointed a Vendor of Record by Ontario Telemedicine Network for the provision of digital solutions for addictions for an initial period of five years.
Funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health, OTN is a not-for-profit organisation whose role is to bring virtual care innovation into the healthcare system of Ontario. It has become a global leader in telemedicine and connected care.
