Changing Habits with Virtual Reality
We are transforming the way behavioral health disorders are treated and managed
About Us

Lucid Care offers a Virtual Reality platform to treatment centers for Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders that increases patient engagement and retention. Our digital therapeutics platform significantly reduces anxiety and cravings, often within one session, and enable patients to develop positive daily habits that keep them in treatment.

Our team has years of experience creating VR healthcare solutions that are used by pediatric patients at Stanford Children's Hospital and by neurosurgeons at UCLA and UCSF to focus before procedures. We are pioneer researchers in VR and behavioral health, have strong technological backgrounds, are clinical experts in addiction and mental health, and veteran content producers.
