Who is Wagon For?
Wagon is for those struggling with a substance use disorder, a behavioural addiction or an eating disorder. Currently, Wagon is offered through participating treatment providers including treatment centres, clinics and individual counsellors as well as some employee benefits providers. We believe that connection is key to recovery from addiction and mental health disorders, and Wagon creates more connection between clinicians and their clients.
Easy To Use
With an intuitive, powerful, simple interface, Wagon is easy and quick to use. Whether you’re completing your daily, weekly, or monthly goals, writing in your private journal, checking your progress, or reading the daily inspirational message, Wagon is an intuitive and convenient way to stay on track.
Wagon creates connection between you and your counsellor. You set up your recovery goals together, and your counsellor monitors your progress and provides guidance and support. And if you need immediate support, use our SOS feature to reach out.
Personalized Recovery Plans
Whether you struggle with a substance use disorder, problem gambling, or an eating disorder, your recovery plan will reflect your goals. Working with a counsellor, you’ll design a custom recovery plan that will set you on the path to wellness. You can set custom reminders, log your triggers and feelings and create your own gratitude list.
Access Anywhere, Anytime
You need your recovery plan everywhere you go. That’s why Wagon is available whether you’re online or offline, at any time of the day. Set up your plan with your counsellor, download the app on you IOS or Android phone, and start accomplishing your goals right away.
Wagon was designed to be used in combination with other therapeutic care. Whether you provide inpatient treatment, outpatient services, individual counselling or a post-treatment care program, Wagon will help you provide long-term continuing care. We don’t think an app alone will keep clients sober, but continued connection, accountability and recovery planning in combination with a treatment program will.
You’ll have access to all of the information your clients are logging. That means you’ll be able to see their goal completion and emotional state at a glance at any time of the day. You know your clients; you’ll see the red flags in their profile, and can reach out to provide counsel before a relapse happens.
With Wagon, you’ll be providing a more comprehensive continuum of care. You’ll maintain a stronger connection with your patients and you’ll have statistical data on your client outcomes. The data is priceless; you can start to identify high-risk points in your continuum of care, learn which goals have the best outcomes and track patient progress over the long-term.
“Wagon provides me with a daily recap of my recovery efforts. Especially useful during hectic periods, Wagon requires a daily inventory of not only my material efforts, but also my spiritual and emotional accounting. Wagon’s best feature might be the ability to allow my counsellor access to my efforts, spotting trends that I might not have noticed and offering guidance as needed. It takes a village…”
Tim C., Ontario
“My introduction and subsequent use of Wagon was exactly what I needed in early recovery. From the daily sobriety counter to the daily, weekly and monthly task checklists. The accountability was a welcomed addition in my life.”
Chris F., Alberta
“Wagon is improving the quality of life of my clients. It’s an excellent tool to build accountability, awareness and overall personal balance. Wagon allows clients to work closely with a counsellor, and piece together for themselves the holistic aspects of recovery while they discover triggers, and practice appropriate coping mechanisms. I’ve personally experienced the fluid therapeutic relationship Wagon promotes, and have seen this translate into deeper levels of vulnerability in group sessions with peers.”
Shelbi Snodgrass, B.A. Psychology, Alberta
“Wagon gives me the ability to track and monitor the most important elements of my recovery. Although I have several years of sobriety, I have never had the ability to see what parts of my program are being neglected the way I do with Wagon. In an instant, I can assess where I have been slipping over the previous week and get back on track. If I have been having a bad day or two the answer is usually waiting for me when I get back ‘on the Wagon’.”
