Virtual Rehab leverages the advancements in Virtual and Augmented Reality technology to reduce the number of repeated offenses and re-incarceration rates worldwide.
Every person in life deserves a second chance. Inmates and Substance Abuse Addicts are no exception to this rule. In fact, they are the ones that are in most dire need for help, support, and development to become improved citizens upon their release from prisons and rehab centers. This can only be realized through correctional and rehabilitation programs that will prepare them to lead their future lives in a positive manner in order to avoid the possibility of repeated offenses and substance abuse addiction.
According to the International Centre for Prison Studies, the Global Prison Population total is currently set at 10.5 million (out of which 2.2 million are in the U.S.). Prison budgets are also currently set at roughly $35.2 billion dollars worldwide. As from a Rehab perspective, there are approximately 255 million suffering from substance abuse and roughly $100 billion are being spent on addiction treatment worldwide. These numbers are huge and both costly to the governments, tax payers, and society as a whole.
At Virtual Rehab, we are developing a powerful tool (provisionally patented) which would rehabilitate rather than just punish. The scope of this tool includes Formal Education, Vocational Job Training, Psychological Rehabilitation, and Correctional Services Rehabilitation. Virtual Rehab’s services will extend to inmates, correctional officers, rehab centers, children-in-need, along with other verticals in the future.
Virtual Rehab will develop an interactive formal education tool, where inmates can strengthen their knowledge of English, Business, Mathematics, Sciences, Technology, along with other courses. Inmates and substance abuse addicts will also be able to acquire new vocational job training skills including car mechanic, plumbing, welding, carpentry, along with other professions. Virtual Rehab's interactive tool will also assist in treating inmates and substance abuse addicts’ psychological challenges including mental illness, emotional disorders, co-existing disorder, intermittent explosive disorder, and others. In addition, the real-life scenarios and interactivity of Virtual Rehab's tool will allow inmates and substance abuse addicts to undergo correctional services rehabilitation across sex offending, family violence, alcoholism, as well as other offenses.
Virtual Rehab believes that putting a kid in the corner does not teach them how to be a better person but rather teaches them not to get caught. Therefore, we are in it for the social good and to help address the most vulnerable populations out there.
At Virtual Rehab, we are working to reduce recidivism and re-incarceration rates through Virtual and Augmented Reality-based immersive learning and rehabilitation programs.
