Moderate or quit drinking from home for California residents
How our virtual alcohol rehab works
We prescribe naltrexone (ReVia or Vivitrol) to help to reduce your alcohol cravings.
Naltrexone is administered as a part of our complete treatment program, which includes behavioral therapies coursework and online counseling.
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.
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.

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.
Yes, all prescriptions for medication for alcohol use disorder are always offered with a corresponding digital support and education program. 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.
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.
“Lisa, my co-founder and I, founded Workit after meeting in California’s recovery community. We were tired of seeing friends fall through the cracks of traditional systems of care. Workit Health brings expert support for alcohol directly to Californian's phones.”

Frequently asked questions
Will buprenorphine help me feel better right away?
With opioid addiction, people are physically and emotionally depleted. When you give someone the first couple of doses of buprenorphine, they immediately feel better. When you see them for their follow-up, they say they feel like a new person. It’s not often that you’re able to see the result of treatment so quickly.

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.
