Implications

“Historically, mental health and substance use care has simply attempted to treat the presenting issue, rather than addressing the underlying ’why’ behind it.  By treating both, our differentiated model is transforming and redefining the industry’s traditional approach to mental health and substance use care.

-- Eric Frieman, Co-Founder and CEO
