Seattle startup raises $6 million for app that helps people stay in recovery

The idea behind WeConnect’s app is to create a supportive community and incentives for people in drug and alcohol recovery treatment as a way to prevent relapses. WeConnect sells its app to recovery facilities and drug courts, which then provide it to patients as part of treatment.

The app tracks how long someone has been in recovery, compiles an inventory of completed treatment activities and provides a way to quickly alert friends and family on a designated call list if the user is in  need of  help. Read more here.
