As opioid abuse continues to make impact in the US, more and more tech-driven answers to the drug crisis are springing up that aim to reduce patients’ reliance on prescription opioids. Just yesterday, behavioral health therapy app maker 2Morrow threw its hat into the ring with the announcement that its services now include a digital chronic pain management program.
Much like the company’s other offerings — which target smoking, weight, and stress — the pain management program is based on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), a clinically tested form of cognitive behavioral therapy that’s strongly endorsed by the Society of Clinical Psychology. Developed in collaboration with Dr. Kevin Vowles, a behavioral scientist at the University of New Mexico, 2Morrow’s program features a number of short lessons and exercises that teach users how to keep their life on track while living with chronic pain. The app-based program also allows users to message a live pain management coach if they have questions or need specific help with their condition.
