Hayver is adding blockchain to overcome drug and alcohol addiction
Treatment centers, recovery residences, and customers across the U.S. already use our Recovery App, every single day. We’re proud to launch yet another advancement in the treatment of addiction-related diseases through peer-to-peer monitoring apps and crypto-rewards.
I have co-founded Hayer as a result of my personal struggle with alcohol and opiate addiction.
For fifteen years, I was constantly in and out of treatment programs and rarely stayed sober. I’m a physician and I scoured the world literature searching for evidence-based, well-designed studies in the medical journals for what works for improving chances for long-term sobriety.
What I found was alarming. Physicians and other licensed professionals have a 78% chance of being abstinent from drugs and alcohol after five years, but the rest of the general population have around a 5% chance of abstinence. Statistically, they don’t stand a chance.
Accountability monitoring: checking in daily, with the random possibility of being urine tested that day. It’s the psychological deterrence that works.
Based on the success of the professional programs, we developed the first monitoring randomized drug and alcohol testing with peer-to-peer accountability support, telemedicine and crypto-rewards to dramatically improve recovery outcomes.

The Staggering Facts
110 million people worldwide suffer from alcoholism or drug addiction
29 million people worldwide suffer from drug abuse disorder
Worldwide about 3.3 million deaths are attributable to alcohol consumption
20.8 million Americans suffer from chronic substance abuse
Only 2.2 million individuals received any type of treatment
135,000 deaths: In the U.S., alcohol misuse contributes to 88,000 deaths each year; in 2014, there were 47,055 drug overdose deaths.

The most effective path to recovery is with daily check-ins.
Hayver provides real-time, digitized visibility to support and monitor recovery success.
Recovery Abstinence Rates
(Based on physicians and other licensed professionals programs. References listed below.)
After 1 year
- Non-Monitored 24%
- Monitored 94%
After 5 years
- Non-Monitored 5%
- Monitored 78%
That’s more than a 1,500% improvement through monitored recovery!
Hayver customers have access to long-term monitoring, previously only available to licensed professionals.
A digital behavior-change platform based on five foundations:
Platform randomly selects Members for urine testing based on prior behavior
Activities and notifications are provided to Member’s Circle of Support
Psychological Incentives with Crypto-Rewards
Members and the Circle of Support are rewarded for healthful activities and outcomes
Circle of Support sends feedback to the Member via love, hugs and kudos emojis, triggering psychological desire/need to accumulate them and be rewarded, similar effect to the like button on Facebook
Health and Educational Information
Members and the Circle of Support will be able to access digital education modules, lectures, and materials
“The current methods for treating addiction are inadequate.
We are introducing a new paradigm: crypto-incentivized rewards for patients and communities through blockchain-based, peer-to-peer health and wellness applications that capture behavioral performance and measure outcomes.”
John M. Copenhaver, M.D.
The World’s premier crypto reward
A symbol of courage to overcome stigma and fight addiction
The Duitcoin is envisioned as the world’s premier crypto-reward, symbolizing heroic courage. The currency will be deployed first in the Hayver multi-lingual mobile app and, second, in global partners’ apps to help conquer one of the most daunting challenges humans have ever faced: overcoming addiction.
Duitcoins will be issued as ERC-20/223 tokens on the public Ethereum network.
Hayver Recovery Score
The Hayver Platform tracks Members’ activity within the App and assigns a Hayver Recovery Score (HRS), a numeric value based on the previous 24-hour period and cumulative daily behaviors for relapse predictive purposes. Each Member will develop an HRS between 50 and 150, with the mean score of 100 as a predictive value of future behaviors and outcomes.
The benefit is that the Circle of Support–and most importantly the Member– has objective data to better manage and intervene appropriately to prevent relapse back into chronic substance use.
Based on the HRS, the Member will be eligible for Hayver and third-party services like credit card, employment placement, and insurance, helping them strengthen their recovery and build bridges to a better life.
