Lowell, MA – The Megan's House Foundation founder Timothy Grover in partnership with Health Helm, Inc. has early results of Trusted Success Coach App, providing mobile health support for Megan's House residents in recovery from substance use disorder. 

Megan's House is a comprehensive residential recovery treatment home for young women between the ages of 18 and 26 whom are recovering from drug dependence and other co-occurring disorders.  Its multifaceted approach to the treatment of addiction includes evidenced-based services aimed at improving the quality of life of its residents. Megan's House considers aftercare placement (including to its affiliate Success Home, Erin's House) and ongoing recovery support a vital component to long-term recovery. 

Grover and Megan's House team aim to provide mobile support, care coordination and communications between Megan's House residents and graduates with Megan's House Success Coaches through Health Helm's mobile app, Trusted Success Coach.  "Staying connected to a trusting and supportive team is a key element for successful recovery," states Tim Grover, Founder of The Megan's House Foundation.  "We are excited to offer our residents and graduates this opportunity," he continued.  Verizon generously donated several iPhones and phone plans for each of the women who are using the Trusted Success Coach App.

Pamela McNamara is the CEO and Co-Founder of Health Helm, Inc. – a growing digital health company successfully commercializing a superior post-acute care plan adherence solution — is expanding into the chronic care domain with the signing of new partner The Megan House Foundation. The mobile app and web-based portal are easily configurable and provide a strong closed-loop communication link between clinicians and the young women at Megan's and Erin's House who are using the app. Trusted Success Coach App collects daily lifestyle and behavior choices from those in recovery and maps those choices against the adherence goals of their individual treatment plans.

"Addiction treatment is a large, growing, and underserved market," states Pamela McNamara continues, "and compliments our continued dedication to the post-acute care market and post-operative markets, like orthopedics, where we continue to invest heavily."  The Megan's House implementation joins together the evidence-based treatment approach of Megan's House with Health Helm's rich data collection and analytics capabilities.

The mission at Megan's House Foundation is to improve the quality of life of its residents through an evidence-based substance abuse treatment program that emphasizes individual dignity, self-respect, and empowerment. In doing so the treatment team utilizes flexibility, support, and outstanding client services to meet individual needs and establish a culture that promotes wellness and success.

Health Helm, Inc. has developed its proprietary software platform to address the growing problems of high post-discharge hospital readmissions and non-adherence by patients to medications and care plans. This platform closes the communication loop between patients and their clinicians, is configurable to post-acute and chronic conditions, and uses real-time analytics and other functionality to support patients, clinicians, and providers. Health Helm, Inc.TM is led by Ms. McNamara and a team with extensive healthcare, clinical trial and patient adherence experience.

The mission of the Megan House Foundation is to improve the quality of life of its residents through an evidence-based substance abuse treatment program that emphasizes individual dignity, self-respect and empowerment. Through Megan’s House and Erin’s House, the Foundation has established a culture that promotes wellness and success.
