OneRecovery – A Supportive Online Community For Addicts

David Metzler, CEO, OneRecovery – User-Generated Health
David has a past. He’s been both an addict, an investor, and an entrepreneur. For the last few years he’s been trying to use his talents to help people with problems like his, and OneRecovery is the result. It’s a new type of community that blurs the lines between peer support and provider-based coaching. With funding from Health 2.0 specialists Lemhi Ventures and a deal with Aetna on tap, we think OneRecovery is emblematic of a new type of “community as behavior change” platform. This demo was part of the Health 2.0 San Francisco 2011 conference.
