The healthy behaviors company
Introduction
Alere Wellbeing (formerly Free & Clear) brings together science, technology, and personal interaction to help people recognize and modify unhealthy behaviors to avoid chronic illness and live longer, more vital lives.

Alere Wellbeing is known and respected for its pay-for-performance business model, intense focus on scalable service quality, dedicated account management, continuous program improvement, and transparent reporting of measurable outcomes.

The Quit For Life® Program, the nation’s leading tobacco cessation program, employs an evidence-based combination of physical, psychological, and behavioral strategies to enable participants to take responsibility for and overcome their addiction to tobacco. The program combines phone-based cognitive behavioral coaching and medication support with web-based learning, tracking, and social support.

In September 2008, Alere Wellbeing announced the addition of The Mind & Body® Program, a new innovative behavior change solution to help employers address the key risk factors for chronic disease and obesity within their workforces. The Mind & Body Program teaches participants to master The 8 Essential Practices for a Healthy Mind & Body® using an adaptive curriculum made up of online learning, community support and expert guidance via phone, email and online interactions.

Alere Wellbeing has contributed to more than 115 published research studies and maintains collaboration with the American Cancer Society® and an active research program funded by academic and public health organizations including the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institutes of Health. Alere Wellbeing provides services to 27 state governments and more than 650 health plans and employers (63 in the Fortune 500).
