Soberlink is a tool used to identify, test, and communicate alcohol use. If you’re in addiction recovery you might think of it as your accountability partner. For our purposes, it’s all about being accountable to yourself, to your former spouse, and to the court, in an effort to keep clean and preserve your relationships with your kids in the divorce process.
Chris Beck joins us from Soberlink to talk about the tool, the technology behind it, how it is used in the law, and their advocacy surrounding advocacy against weaponizing alcohol addiction. In developing the tool, in fact, you’ll hear how their position aligns to our own: to provide court-admissible proof of sobriety in an effort to regain health and safety in your most important relationships, kids at the top of the list.
