Online Suboxone treatment for California residents
Quit opioids from the comfort of home via telemedicine
Our doctors prescribe Suboxone (buprenorphine/ naloxone) which relieves withdrawal symptoms and reduces cravings for opioids.
Suboxone is prescribed as a part of a complete treatment program, which includes behavioral therapies, coursework, and online coaching.
Virtual Doctor’s Appointments
All of 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 and recovery groups are available online, so you have access to support when you need it most.
Trained in addiction recovery, Workit counselors listen, provide tools, and offer advice that makes a difference.

You've got questions? We have answers
Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) works by taking the place of other opioids to prevent cravings and lessen the intensity of withdrawal symptoms. Buprenorphine is one of three FDA-approved medications to treat opioid use disorder, and many people in recovery from opioid addiction say it helps them feel normal.
Your first appointment will be an orientation with your care team, and then a provider appointment will be scheduled. In some states, as long as you’re a good fit for the program, you will receive Suboxone e-prescribed to your local pharmacy the same day of your provider appointment. In others, laws require a drug test on file before buprenorphine can be prescribed. It is always up to the discretion of your provider to determine if it is clinically appropriate to prescribe medication.
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. We have the most reputable online doctors for suboxone treatment.
Yes, all prescriptions for medication for opioid use disorder are offered with a corresponding digital support and education program. Through the Workit Health app, you will be able to join online recovery groups, message with the care team, and work through therapeutic courses. Choose the level and type of support that works best for you.
Drug tests are included in your care, and mailed to you in discreet packaging. At your initial appointment, your care team will explain how to take a virtual drug test via the app.

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.
