About this community:
There are over 30 million Americans in addiction recovery, and probably many more we don’t have numbers on. And only 1 in 9 get help. There is a growing community of people who understand nutrition, fitness, spirituality, meetings, and 24 hour access to help are critical to maintaining long-term sobriety. This is a community already immersed in yoga, special dietary needs, daily 12-step meetings etc. Everyone who enters recovery needs new, healthy habits to replace the old ones. Easy access to tools and information to nurture this new lifestyle are essential. By providing this ever growing community with online information and apps to help, it’s a business that works on many levels.
