Medication, coaching, and most necessary forms of medical support can be conducted virtually without any reduction in quality.

The breathalyzer reinforces new behaviors around alcohol and helps you and your care team track your progress. Regularly testing your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) keeps you accountable to yourself, and also gives you a ritual to remind you of your goals. And because the breathalyzer pairs with our app via Bluetooth, you’ll be able to see how your drinking is changing over time. This provides encouragement and also lets your team see what is and isn’t working so they can better support you.
