"Those in recovery from addiction know how tough it can be to stay on top of the disease — to remain aware of how they're feeling throughout the day and to find support when needed," says David Sack, MD, CEO of Elements Behavioral Health. "We developed the Cassava app so that the millions of people working through these challenges don't have to reach further than their cell phone or tablet to give their recovery a boost."
The Cassava app is the next generation of iPromises, a recovery app launched by Elements Behavioral Health in 2010 that reached over 20,000 downloads and was featured in the December 2010/January 2011 edition of Inc. Magazine's "App Time." To download the Cassava app for free, go to Addiction.com or visit the iTunes store.
