How Can An App Help Me With My Addiction Recovery? Wayne Blampied of Cognit
< 1 day ago
Wayne struggled for years with addiction and mental health issues. After completing several programs with limited results Wayne began to look at his own strengths, beliefs and principles and focused on wellness. When this regime was successful for him, he began to research and develop a strengths and wellness based program that could be used by others.
Wayne founded Cognit Corporation to provide mobile web-based programs that support and enhance addiction and mental health education, treatment and recovery. Wayne is currently working exclusively with Springstone Hospitals to implement the Cognit Addiction and Mental Health Wellness programs in inpatient and outpatient settings. He has trained over 500 care providers from personal support workers, to doctors and psychiatrists in the Cognit wellness models. He is leading the creation of stress and trauma stabilization programs for use with the military.
Prior to founding Cognit, Wayne worked as an IT consultant for over twenty years which has been invaluable in the development of Cognit as a web based program. He feels that addiction and mental health issues require at least one year of supportive programs to ensure success. The web-based model allows individuals to access the programs at their convenience when they need it the most.
Wayne has testified in front of the Ontario Select Committee on Mental Health and Addictions and participated in focus groups with the Mental Health Commission of Canada. He was profiled by MaRS in Life Sciences and Health Care & Information Technology. He led the ARC Angels in a successful submission to the Canada’s Health Infoway, ImagineNation Ideas Challenge.
