LOS ANGELES, CA (September 15, 2010) – BusinessWire – Fresh on the heels of their successful iPromises Recovery Companion launch, Promises Behavioral Health, parent company to Promises Treatment Centers and The Ranch, will create a series of addiction recovery-related mobile apps.
Over the next six to twelve months, the organization will continue to release updated versions of the current iPromises app for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, as well as a Droid version. Additionally, the development of mobile applications for process-related addictions (namely sex addiction and eating disorders), will offer virtual recovery assistance for individuals seeking free, easy-to-use, accountability tools on their smart phones and other mobile devices.
“Since the launch of our iPromises Recovery Companion in June, we’ve reached over 3,000 individuals in over twenty countries, received positive reviews on Top Ten iPhone Apps, iPhone App Review, AppScout, and Yahoo Health’s ‘Appolicious,’ and received hundreds of user remarks touting the app as a true accountability and support tool,” remarked David Sack, CEO of Promises Behavioral Health.
“We understand the importance of keeping up with trends, and our company is dedicated to supporting the recovery community both online and offline.”
Added Vera Appleyard, VP of Internet Marketing for Promises Behavioral Health: “The mobile application market boom is an opportunity to have global reach with our tools for recovery, and this is extremely exciting for us. As a leader in leveraging technology to support the recovery process, it only makes sense that we allocate resources toward this endeavor.”
To date, Promises Behavioral Health has released the iPromises Recovery Companion version 1.1 and version 1.2, with version 1.3 to hit by late 2010. The application is currently available for free on iTunes.
