Breaking Free Group has formed a partnership with Ten16 Recovery Network to enable Breaking Free from Substance Abuse, its evidence-based digital solution, to support communities across Michigan, including Midland, Clare, Gladwin, and Mecosta.
Funded by a grant from the Dow Chemical Company, which is headquartered in Midland, this initiative will provide Ten16 Recovery Network’s clients with 24/7 access via any device to personalized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for substance use disorders, and its clinicians with a powerful new way to deliver effective virtual care.
Dr Jonathan Ward, Managing Director of Breaking Free Group, commented: “We are very proud to be partnering with Ten16 Recovery Network, who share our mission to expand access to evidence-based interventions that strengthen people’s recovery and support their journey to wellness. As is the case across the United States, the pandemic has made it harder for people in Michigan to access addiction services. Breaking Free will augment Ten16 Recovery Network’s in-person treatment provision and help its services reach out to and engage more of those needing support in the community.”
Sam Price, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ten16 Recovery Network said: “Thanks to the generosity of a grant from the Dow Chemical Company, we are really excited to be able to partner with Breaking Free Group. The pandemic has taught us that technology can be a powerful tool for building and sustaining a person’s recovery. Breaking Free allows us to go beyond Zoom-based talk therapy and give our staff and those we serve an innovative new connection to create enduring positive change.”
