Lionrock founded National Online Recovery Day in 2020 to raise awareness of this beneficial approach to living a life in recovery. Lionrock uses technology to stay connected to its clients and makes it easier and more private to not only get sober, but maintain sobriety through a robust online support system called Lionrock.life. Their fully online services are successful, too. A recent study reported 80% of Lionrock’s clients remained abstinent at 18 months after discharge from treatment; that’s twice the national average.
Online recovery has been and continues to be the most private and successful way to get help with substance abuse. In fact, half of Lionrock clients say that they would not get help in a traditional setting if there were no online options.
On July 15, 2020, the Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Online Recovery Day to be observed on September 22nd, annually.
