Former Addict Turned Tech Entrepreneur Delivers Breakthough Monitoring and Intervention Technology via Mobile Apps for People with Addiction and Mental Health Issues
Date:5/9/2017

As opioid abuse reaches epidemic levels nationwide, one tech entrepreneur has been focused on developing technology solutions to aid addicts for more than a decade. Clean and sober now for thirty years, Dr. Harold Jonas (PhD, LMHC, PhD), has recently made available a new platform called “FlexDek” on which mobile apps can be built that target medical, behavioral and physical diagnoses.

As the Founder and President of Sober Network Inc., one of Dr. Jonas’ mobile apps called FlexDek: MAT Edition, is designed on the FlexDek platform and helps with the recovery process of addicts utilizing Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). In 2016, it won a prestigious award from The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration for its innovation and design. This year, celebrity athlete, wrestling legend, actor and recovering addict Kurt Angle partnered with Dr. Jonas and his firm Sober Network Inc. to utilize the FlexDek platform to build the his new “Anglestrong” recovery management mobile app to help fight the raging nationwide opioid crisis.

“I started utilizing technology to fight addiction back in 2004,” said Sober Network Inc. Founder and President Dr. Harold Jonas. “But only now is the media picking up on the story because opioid abuse has escalated to a crisis level. Mainstream America has become a huge part of the problem. Stereotypes surrounding the definition of an addict are changing. Now the media are forced to take notice. At the same time, people’s use of technology on a daily and even hourly basis is skyrocketing. There’s no better way to reach someone than through their mobile phone. Our FlexDek technology uniquely takes advantage of mobile apps as a delivery method of a monitoring service to a patient. But FlexDek can also help the healthcare professional, facility or counselor streamline aftercare. FlexDek has proven to be flexible, adaptable and powerful with high-tech features which are easy-to-use and critical to modifying patient behavior and increasing compliance while reducing relapse or re-hospitalization. FlexDek has proven its effectiveness and ability to scale,” concluded Jonas.

Mobile apps built by Sober Network Inc. utilizing the FlexDek platform include Reminderz, an award-winning app designed to engage and retain patients in clinical trials and collect data for the Clinical Research Organization (CRO); FlexDek: MAT Edition to assist the recovery process of clients utilizing Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT); and the Anglestrong recovery app launched by superstar athlete Kurt Angle.
