Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery Virtual Reality Experiences
San Francisco, California - August 21, 2017 - NewPathVR is pleased to announce that they will be working with Dr. Phil to promote Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery on RE:NEW (RenewVR.com), the Leading Source for VR Wellness Experiences.
Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery is a virtual reality recovery reinforcement tool available to help the newly sober make the difficult transition from rehab to the real world.
Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery VR experiences depict various scenarios that are common triggers for individuals reentering the world outside of rehab. Each scenario features a face-to-face experience with Dr. Phil.
This powerful new virtual reality tool for use in the fight against addiction was created with inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities in mind. The RE:NEW wellness portal will help direct people to the various facilities that offer DR. Phil’s virtual reality experiences as part of their treatment program.
"Dr. Phil's Samsung Gear VR experience highlights the types of useful content people will be drawn to VR for at a time when some wonder about the initial viability of the virtual reality market." said Lisa Padilla, NewPathVR's founder and CEO. She continued, "Wellness products will drive adoption because they represent meaningful content people will use on a daily basis to change their lives."
Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery’s two-step supplemental strategy includes virtual sessions with Dr. Phil, accompanied by workbook exercises designed to be completed and discussed with each facility’s counseling staff.
Designed specifically for those struggling with addiction, it represents the culmination of more than four decades of experience Dr. Phil has working in the mental health profession and addiction recovery. Dr. Phil’s Path to Recovery uses virtual reality to help people confront all of the problems in their life (not limited to addiction), identify the causes, and start working toward permanent solutions. You'll be able to find Dr. Phil's Path to Recovery VR program on RE:NEW starting this week and at participating rehab centers.
