Changing Habits with Virtual Reality
Our mission is to help people improve their mental well being by reducing anxiety, overcoming addiction, and staying on track during their treatment and at home.
About Us

Lucid Care has developed a VR platform geared towards tackling the opioid epidemic. Our immediate focus is to help tens of millions of people learn skills they can practice daily to avoid relapse. We are a support tool for treatment centers experiencing the brunt of the opioid epidemic and mental health crisis.

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.
