Announcing Strategic Partnership with Freedom 365

New partnership provides substance use recovery and support

The WELL Learning Library today announced a strategic partnership with Freedom 365. This new partnership, provides WELL Learning Library members with access to learning content from Freedom 365’s virtual substance use recovery system.

Freedom 365 was developed by Addiction Recovery Author and State Licensed Addiction Treatment Center CEO, Brian McAlister. The Freedom 365 – Virtual Recovery System takes the content and activities of a rehabilitation program, presented in an interactive digital experience that can be accessed privately – anytime, anywhere – from a phone, tablet or PC.

It’s become crucial to provide innovative mental health support to our workforce. Workers with substance use disorder are up to 35% less productive and use significantly more healthcare benefits. The WELL Learning Library provides the perfect platform to bring mental health and wellness solutions that meet people where they are.

Brian McAlister, CEO (Freedom 365) Tweet

Several recent reports have shown that COVID-19 has led to a surge in substance use. People may be using alcohol and drugs more frequently to deal with the stress, anxiety and even boredom of the current pandemic. A report recently released by Nielsen showed that alcoholic beverage sales shot up 55% in the third week of March compared to the same time a year ago.

In the post COVID-19 world, it has never been more important for everyone to understand and have an awareness of best practices in the areas of personal health and wellness, building design and operations, and public health. The WELL Learning Library provides on-demand educational content to organizations large and small; advancing human health and making our building environments healthier, better prepared, and more resilient.

Freedom 365 will provide exclusive substance use and recovery content to the WELL Learning Library, in addition to offering WELL Learning Library members discounted access to the entire Freedom 365 Virtual Recovery System.
