Better Noise Films and the Amy Winehouse Foundation team up with Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation To Save Lives presenting SNO BABIES movie


Amy Winehouse Foundation logo

– SNO BABIES film available 29th September – available to watch via rental/purchase on Amazon, Apple TV, iTunes, Google Play and more

  • SNO BABIES soundtrack available 4th September on Better Noise Films

Today, Better Noise Music are proud to announce that the Amy Winehouse Foundation is now the official UK charity partner for the upcoming feature film from Better Noise Films, SNO BABIES. The Amy Winehouse Foundation supports young people affected by drug and alcohol problems, as well as providing drug and alcohol education in schools and recovery housing facilities for young women and is the perfect charity partner for Better Noise and SNO BABIES, whose main aim is to raise awareness of the opioid crisis globally.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation was set up by Amy’s family on 14 September 2011, on what would have been Amy’s 28th birthday. Since then, the charity has worked with over 300,000 children in schools; engaged with hundreds of people in recovery and continues to provide support, treatment and therapy for children and young people in the UK and overseas. Their programmes include:

  • The Amy Winehouse Foundation Resilience Programme – an evidence-based drug & alcohol awareness programme led by people in recovery and supporting children and students aged 11 upwards in schools, colleges and community settings.
  • Amy’s Place – an award-winning recovery housing project for women aged 18 to 30, which provides safe homes for up to two years in a nurturing environment where the young women can focus on their ongoing recovery from addiction.
  • Recovery Pathways Programme – working with professional partners to provide support, counselling, residential treatment and housing for young people aged 18-30.

Mitch Winehouse, Co-Founder of Amy Winehouse Foundation: “We know from personal experience the devastation and heartbreak that addiction can bring. Since setting up the Amy Winehouse Foundation in our daughter’s memory 9 years ago, we have learnt so much about this condition. We have also learnt that recovery is possible and people can go on to live wonderful and fulfilling lives. We’ve made it our mission to work with people in recovery and to support young people who are struggling with the same sorts of issues as Amy and we’re delighted that Better Noise and SNO BABIES are helping us to do that.”

Allen Kovac, CEO of Better Noise Music, says: “We are very proud to have partnered with the Amy Winehouse Foundation. They do such an incredible job in Amy’s name of educating people around what is becoming such a massive problem. Their work with young people is close to our heart and obviously reflects the harrowing storyline in the film. We look forward to saving lives together.”

This fits perfectly with Better Noise’s feature film SNO BABIES, which aims to raise awareness of the growing opioid crisis around the world. Set for global release on 29 September, SNO BABIES is a gripping and emotive tale that depicts the grim realities of teenage addiction and provides hope for recovery. Kristen and Hannah are best friends – smart, likeable and college-bound – and also addicted to heroin. The pair of seemingly unlikely addicts spiral down a path of destruction, hiding their secret from well-meaning but busy parents behind pink bedrooms and school uniforms. Directed by Bridget Smith and starring Katie Kelly (Game of Silence), Paola Andino (Queen of the South) and Michael Lombardi (Rescue Me), SNO BABIES shows how easy it can be to both miss and hide the signs of addiction. Outside of the UK, Better Noise Films’ share of profits is being donated to Global Recovery Initiatives (GRI).

In a mission to reduce the stigma of Substance Use Disorders (SUD) and make an impact, Better Noise Films has collaborated with Global Recovery Initiatives to use the film’s release as a platform to raise awareness of GRI’s efforts to provide access to recovery support services all around the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the risk for those in recovery, for both catching the virus and more severe outcomes. Treatments and support systems are disrupted, and social isolation increases the risk for addiction, relapse and overdose deaths.

Additionally, the film’s soundtrack was released on 4 September and features some of today’s biggest rock artists, including Slash, Mötley Crüe and SIXX:A.M.’s Nikki Sixx, Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and more. All artist royalties from the soundtrack are being donated to The Global Recovery Initiative Foundation (GRI), with matching contributions by Better Noise Music.

September is Recovery Month, and the soundtrack and film will raise funds to support recovery for Global Recovery Initiatives, as well as the Amy Winehouse Foundation. With every stream or download of the soundtrack and film, you are contributing to helping someone in recovery and helping to save lives!

“Our talented Utah team deserves this recognition as they continue to rise to new levels of excellence for our customers,” states Gavin Collier

Dynamic Blending Specialists was recognized this week as the 22nd fastest growth company in Utah among the Utah Fast 50. The company’s rapid rise over the past three years is on trajectory to double in size in the next year.

With a one-stop approach, the company can take a product from idea to formula to manufacturing to packaging to marketing and shipping in roughly half the time taken by the industry’s larger manufacturers. All this, while maintaining rigorous quality control and supply chain standards.

Past winners include Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Jamba Juice, Pandora, Patagonia, among others.

AZZLY® Partners with Comstock Computing® to Expand Services Offered at Opioid Treatment Programs


Physicians and clinical staff understand the benefit of meeting the patient where they are and offering alternative medications and therapies. It makes their jobs easier and less room for error to have all services and documentation in one system.

AZZLY, Inc. a leading behavioral and addiction treatment digital health solution, announced today that it has partnered with Comstock Computing, a specialty Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) solutions provider. The new partnership enables OTP clinics to expand the services they provide and programs that they offer within their community by taking advantage of the digital health AZZLY Rize™ platform for improved staff efficiency and patient satisfaction.

AZZLY Rize is a leading digital health solution serving the growing ambulatory residential and outpatient treatment centers that offer abstinence based and medication assisted treatment services.

Methware was designed by a seasoned software architect with decades of experience in opioid treatment. Methware has all the necessary tools for methadone prescribing: full drug inventory control, patient dosing and medication records, payments received, daily reporting, and dispensing pump support.

“As funding opportunities for opioid treatment modalities increase, overlap between medication assisted treatment and other behavioral health modalities will become more and more common,” Eric Comstock, CEO of Comstock Computing, said. “By combining Comstock Computing’s unmatched knowledge of medication assisted treatment with AZZLY’s experience in the broader behavioral health space, the best of both worlds is now within reach.”

This seamless integration between Methware and AZZLY Rize, empowers addiction treatment providers to streamline their clinical processes and efficiently treat more patients for opioid use disorder in the same system they use for all scheduling, clinical services and billing. AZZLY focused on the OTP provider market since it was so underserved and fragmented.

“The integration between AZZLY and Methware has been very successful for Lost River Treatment Center,” said Bobbie Crider, LPN, an AZZLY Rize user at Lost River Treatment Center operated by Modoc Nation. “The set up is easy and adding the patients from AZZLY to Methware was a breeze. It has made a few things easier, such as when charting on patients medications, I do not have to go to a separate computer to look at Methware. It is all now in AZZLY. It has also helped with making sure all information on patients is accurate.”

The Integrated Care Pathways™ of AZZLY Rize support the full range of services including intake, scheduling, patient engagement, integrated e-prescribing & PDMP checks, labs, telehealth, outcome measurement tools, analytics and auto-generation of claims for reimbursement and financial reporting.

“We are excited to partner with fellow entrepreneurs that are committed to making a difference in addiction treatment,” commented Coletta Dorado, CEO and Founder of AZZLY, Inc. “ Physicians and clinical staff understand the benefit of meeting the patient where they are and offering alternative medications and therapies. It makes their jobs easier and less room for error to have all services and documentation in one system. The AZZLY Team works hard every day to simplify healthcare processes so staff actually enjoy using an EHR.”

About AZZLY®

AZZLY® Inc. was founded in 2009 by Coletta Dorado. Since 2014, AZZLY has focused on providing a solution specific to addiction treatment and behavioral healthcare through AZZLY Rize™, an all-in-one electronic health record (EHR), patient management (PM) and revenue cycle management (RCM) solution. AZZLY delivers and supports a modern, user friendly, comprehensive digital health platform behavioral healthcare and addiction treatment organizations so they may grow and serve more in need. A 2020 market study called AZZLY a key player in the Global Patient Care Management Software industry. Email hello@azzly.com or visit azzly.com for more information.

About Comstock Computing®

Comstock Computing® is a leader in their field with a unique perspective in developing Methadone treatment software.

The Methodist Home Introduces Multi-Million Dollar Renovation To Expand Short-Term Rehabilitation Services


Methodist Home For Nursing & Rehabilitation Logo

I’m so proud that our team at The Methodist Home has always been state-of-the-art in terms of patient care. And now, with this renovation, our physical facility matches that same level of excellence.” – Maria Perez, CEO and Administrator

The historic Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation has invested in a full-scale renovation and is now the premier short-term rehabilitation skilled nursing facility in the Bronx.

Prior to the pandemic lockdown, The Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation was in the midst of a rebirth. Their historic building located at 4499 Manhattan College Parkway which has been their home since 1929, was undergoing comprehensive renovations. Maria Perez, CEO and Administrator, said of the project, “I’m so proud that our team at The Methodist Home has always been state-of-the-art in terms of patient care. And now, with this renovation, our physical facility matches that same level of excellence.”

At the conclusion of the renovation, the Methodist Home will offer three full floors with private residential rooms, for short-term rehabilitation patients needing therapy or nursing services after surgery or illness. The Methodist Home is the premier skilled nursing facility for patients in need of subacute medical care following hospitalization. As patients prepare to return to their homes, one element of their therapy program will take place in the Activities of Daily Living Suite, which replicates a standard home environment. Outpatient therapy services such as physical therapy, speech therapy, and a stroke program are also available. The facility also features a floor of rooms for patients needing long-term care.

The Methodist Home understands the importance of cleanliness and safety procedures to protect all its residents. Due to the pandemic, these issues are more magnified than ever, and the Methodist Home is proud to have been one of the first nursing homes in New York to meet all Health Department criteria to restart visitation after the surge of cases in New York declined. As part of their commitment to safety and to create a more restful experience for their patients, each resident’s room is private with a private bathroom.

==

The Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation is a skilled nursing facility located in Riverdale, New York. Founded in 1850, they offer short-term rehabilitation, outpatient therapy, and long-term care options in their newly renovated facility. Methodist Home is a highly-rated, non-profit, and non-sectarian organization that strives to provide the highest level of care to all patients.
