The hybrid, online/offline addiction care company is dedicated to rigorous standards of social impact performance, ethical and sustainable business practices, as well as accountability and transparency in addiction treatment solutions.
OAKLAND, CA and ANN ARBOR, MI — Workit Health, the world’s first addiction care company offering hybrid (online/offline), personalized, and science-backed treatment solutions, has officially become a Certified B Corporation. Through its efforts to use the power of business to address the devastating opioid epidemic, Workit Health joins the rapidly growing movement of more than 2,300 Certified B Corporations from 130 industries, across over 50 countries, including companies like Warby Parker, Ben & Jerry’s, and Patagonia.
“Workit Health was founded because we believed in a better way, a more compassionate and science-backed solution when it comes to addiction treatment,” Co-founder and Co-CEO, Lisa McLaughlin, states. “We’re meeting the opioid epidemic head on, community by community, state by state. Workit Clinic is providing affordable treatment through medication-assisted treatment, counseling, and telehealth for those who need it the most.” Additionally, Co-founder and Co-CEO, Robin McIntosh adds that “through patient-centered design and community activation, we strive to bring as much impact and healing to our communities as possible.

Workit Health joins a fast-growing global network of certified businesses that have a commitment to collectively strive for “shared and durable prosperity,” while managing, measuring, and reporting their social and environmental impact. The performance standards B Corps meet are comprehensive, transparent and verified. They measure a company’s impact on all its stakeholders (e.g. workers, suppliers, community, customers and the environment). Unlike traditional corporations, Certified B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders, but also on their stakeholders (e.g., workers, suppliers, community, consumers, and the environment).
