Moderate or quit drinking from home for Illinois residents
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.
Our personalized recovery curriculum will help you gain valuable and life-changing insight about your behaviors and how to change them.
This new understanding will help you break free from old patterns so you can make more informed and empowered choices.

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.
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 the 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 Illinoisans' phones.”

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’re not going to feel alone out there. We also have 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.
