Creating a Sober Social Lifestyle

With readmission rates for patients fighting substance abuse disorders often exceeding 25%* it is painfully clear that today’s recovery treatment centers need better tools to transition their clients to a long-term sober lifestyle.

GoHipo has tackled the ineffective aftercare problem head-on by creating a revolutionary new concept called HipoChat, a mobile social media app given to treatment center client’s upon exiting the facility.
