In collaboration with the City of Worcester Health and Human Services Department, our team created an accessible directory of substance use treatment services and related resources through the creation of a functional mobile application. Prior to our project, there was a lack of communication between service providers and those seeking treatment. Through in-person visits, semi- structured interviews, focus groups with potential users, and a survey, our team collected information and received feedback related to app features and designs. We determined what features were most useful while keeping the app simple and user friendly. Our application will help those seeking treatment and support by easily communicating organizations and services in the city of Worcester.
