With the Biden Administration’s recent $1.6B investment to tackle the SUD and opioid overdose crisis, SUD recovery is at an inflection point. Technology has revolutionized numerous sectors, but SUD recovery demands this innovation now more than ever. The objective isn’t to supersede the vital human touch but to bolster it. The multifaceted nature of recovery doesn’t lend itself to a simple digital makeover. However, there is an undeniable call for technological augmentation to enhance its scope and efficacy.
My battle with SUD became a transformative journey, reshaping my perspective on addiction and recovery pathways. This personal experience, combined with the challenges I faced accessing recovery services, kindled my resolve to shift how these services are delivered. Leveraging my expertise in tech, workforce solutions, and SUD peer services, Kyros was born — not merely as a tech platform, but as an instrument to elevate human connection, making vital recovery services accessible and timely.
