GetHelpNow is a mobile application that provides access to mental health and addiction treatment providers in Montgomery County, Ohio
With the rise of the opioid epidemic, efforts to help patients recover have resulted in a drastic increase in addiction treatment providers. Finding help can be a challenge to simplify the process we partnered with the Montgomery County Alcohol Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) to build a mobile application that helps connect patients with the right treatment and support facilities.
Understanding The Problem
Over the past several years, Ohio consistently ranks at or near the top of the nation for drug overdose-related deaths. Our hometown of Dayton, OH, has been hit especially hard by the opioid crisis.
While our region has an abundant amount of treatment providers for addiction and mental health, finding the right one was a complicated task. Before this project, those seeking help relied on general web searches or were given a printed directory of providers by first responders that was hard to understand and routinely out of date.
GetHelpNow will help eliminate much of the guess work for law enforcement, EMS crews & others who are at the scene of an emergency.
