Over 23 million Americans are addicted to alcohol and other drugs1, yet just under 2.5 million addicts receive care2.

How it Works

iTether is improving industry standards by offering a product that transforms the delivery of treatment services while integrating service across the continuum of care.


For Providers

  • Providers use their own curriculum and deliver it in a way that maximizes successful outcomes.
  • iTether’s platform will save clinicians and counselors time while increasing the effectiveness of their programs.

For Patients

  • iTether’s platform will engage the patient at an earlier stage in their journey, will keep them engaged for a longer period of time, and, therefore, will increase long-term recovery rates.

For Payers

  • We provide provider accountability through evidence-based outcomes and other built-in reporting mechanisms.
  • We collect patient data via context aware interventions that enable individualized, value-based care.

This is exactly what we need.

—Lee Pioske, Executive Director, Crossroads


Addiction Does Not Discriminate

  • Does iTether specialize in specific types of addiction recovery?
    Actually, we view providers as the specialists in addiction recovery. Since iTether specializes in technology, we stick to providing a content neutral digital platform that adds value across all types of addiction recovery services. We offer white-label customization that allows each provider to make the product look and feel like their own. Additionally, iTether converts the provider’s own content for use with the platform, enabling them to save time and money while transforming the way they deliver treatment services.
  • Why is data so important?
    “If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.”* That’s why using data to measure outcomes is a core component of the iTether platform. By automatically collecting and measuring a wide variety of relevant data, providers can connect treatment plans to evidence-based outcomes, enabling continual improvement for patients.

  • How does the iTether platform foster accountability?
    Accountability is an important factor in successful and long-term recovery. In fact, it’s so important that it’s now a requirement, referred to as value-based care, established by the Affordable Care Act. The iTether platform seamlessly integrates accountability across all user segments. Patients engage with the product early in their treatment program, providing active feedback in the form of evidence-based outcomes. Treatment providers then analyze patient feedback to adapt each individual’s treatment program, providing improved results over the long term. Finally, payers can view and validate provider outcomes to make performance-based payments.
  • When can we start using the iTether platform?
    Soon! The Advocate v1.0 is currently in development, with the official Advocate product launch scheduled for Q1 2017. If you are interested in trying out the product before then, consider participating in one of our pilot programs which are currently being scheduled for Q4 2016.
