The EDI Institute partnered with New England Research Institutes to conduct quantitative pilot research at the Gosnold Addiction Center. Results of the full research study include the following:
EDI was designed to be easy to use and accessible for everyone. Our MyMoments mobile app takes only minutes to learn, and has been used thousands of all ages and backgrounds. Our work has included autistic children as young as six, and veterans in their seventies with PTSD.
MyMoments has already been translated into French, Spanish, and Portuguese, and can be easily translated into additional languages with minimal effort.
We are continuously expanding our programs and technology to reach increasingly diverse populations.
