Lucid Care increases patient adherence for centers treating drug and alcohol addiction
The opioid epidemic is on the rise. With high patient drop-out rates from treatment programs, relapse prevention is a major challenge, creating a revolving door of patients unaware how to manage their chronic disease throughout their lives. Lucid Care offers a Virtual Reality platform used in treatment centers that increases patient engagement and retention by reducing anxiety and cravings within minutes.
Treatment centers are able to increase their revenues significantly by receiving full insurance reimbursement for program completion.
We create and analyze proprietary patient data, enabling clinicians to offer personalized, results-based care and intervene high risk patients before they drop out or relapse. Long term, patients can continue the healthy coping habits they’ve learned and join tele-health sessions with their colleagues at home as part of their life long recovery.

Our flagship product, Freespira, is an FDA cleared, evidenced-based treatment indicated for patients diagnosed with panic attacks, panic disorder and PTSD. Freespira corrects the abnormal respiratory patterns associated with these conditions by training the patient to normalize their breathing rate and exhaled CO2 levels. Freespira is medication-free, takes only one month to complete, and is used at home. Results are long lasting, and treatment is authorized by a licensed healthcare provider and can be delivered by a behavioral health clinician or a Freespira coach.
