How our virtual alcohol rehab works

Naltrexone or Acamprosate Treatment

We prescribe naltrexone (ReVia) or acamprosate (Campral) to help to reduce your alcohol cravings.

Medication is administered as a part of our complete treatment program, which includes behavioral therapies, coursework, and support groups.

Virtual Doctor’s Appointments

All our clinician visits are online and hosted through our HIPAA compliant app. Like any doctor’s appointment, our providers will check in with you and monitor your health throughout your treatment. The only difference is that it is all online.

Online Therapy

Recovery can be complicated and unpredictable. That’s why our counselors are available online, so you have access to support when you need it most.

Trained in addiction recovery, they are available to listen, provide tools, and offer advice that makes a difference.

You've got questions? We have answers

Naltrexone affects the pleasure-center in the brain. The medication can reduce the euphoric effects of alcohol, reduce cravings for alcohol, and reduce heavy drinking days.

It is always up to the discretion of our clinician to prescribe medication. As long as you’re a good fit for our program, you will receive medication e-prescribed to a pharmacy near you the same day as your visit.

You will meet with a Workit Clinician directly through the Workit Health web or phone app. Login to your account at your scheduled appointment time, and choose to join your provider’s meeting room. Our in-app video conferencing is HIPAA compliant and totally secure.

Through the Workit Health app, you will be able to join online recovery groups and work through therapeutic courses. As naltrexone is effective treatment for alcohol use disorder with or without counseling, the support options aren’t required. 1:1 counseling sessions are available as an add-on to the treatment program.

Verify your insurance coverage and schedule your first appointment online in less the five minutes by downloading the Workit Health app. If you have more questions, you can speak with a Care Navigator by calling 855-659-7734 from 9am to 7pm EST.

Just like your in-person doctor’s office, at Workit Health we take your privacy seriously. Workit Health’s HIPAA-compliant, HITRUST-certified, WCAG-accessible, and SOC 2 Type II compliant program is an industry leader in telehealth care. We will never release your information to anyone without your permission.

Frequently asked questions

Can naltrexone really help me drink less?

Alcohol use disorder has historically been really hard to treat. In the past, the only option was 12 step programs, which can be effective but don’t work for everybody. Today, naltrexone is a medication that we can use that helps with the cravings for alcohol. It’s easy to take, and there are few side effects. It’s quite effective in helping people to avoid picking up that first drink.

What can I expect from the Workit program? 

Through Workit, you’ll meet with a clinician and develop a therapeutic relationship with them. You’ll have the support of a counselor. You’re not going to feel alone out there. We have groups you join and courses that you can do that are fun and not like being in school. It’s supportive. It’s a little something you carry in your pocket.

Is telemedicine an effective way to treat addiction? 

With telemedicine, you can get the treatment that you need from the comfort of your home. Not everyone can find a babysitter to get to get to a treatment center. Workit Health was one of the first innovative providers to offer telehealth even before COVID. I love being able to reach out to people who need help wherever they are.
