Cress Health

Cress Health is a mobile platform that creates personalized, 24/7 support communities to help addicted populations maintain sobriety after formal treatment programs. We utilize an AI/ML-driven algorithm to form our communities, by matching recovering members to like-minded individuals whom they'll most likely be able to form strong connections with. We supplement these communities with additional tools to help users maintain sobriety, including an "SOS - Send Over Support" button which allows members to receive support if they feel an urge to relapse, a daily check-in, a global newsfeed, and a sobriety tracker.
