Today, Jason Wahler, recovery advocate and TV personality best known from MTV’s hit show “The Hills,” announced his partnership with Oakvine Recovery Center during a launch event to welcome its new facility in Austin, Texas.
The new center is at the forefront of how professionals approach aftercare in addiction treatment, using an evidence-based, progressive approach. Together, Jason and Oakvine Recovery Center will be offering scholarships through The Red Songbird Foundation, in which Jason serves on the board of directors.
As of now, according to statistics, only seven percent of patients who receive treatment stay sober, making aftercare an extremely crucial step in the recovery process. In the last year, the number of overdoses has increased to a shocking 93,000, which is higher than ever.
“I’ve always said, ‘It’s not hard to get sober, it’s hard to stay sober.’ It’s great to see and connect with an organization that embraces that to provide a fresh new take on aftercare by using technology, evidence-based practices, and really getting buy-in from their clients,” said Wahler.
