Quit opioids from the comfort of home via telemedicine
Our affiliated doctors prescribe Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) which relieves withdrawal symptoms and reduces cravings for opioids.
Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) 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 affiliated clinician visits are online and hosted through our HIPAA-compliant app. Like any doctor’s appointment, our affiliated 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 coaches, counselors, and recovery groups are available online, so you have access to support when you need it most.
Trained in addiction recovery, Workit coaches and counselors listen, provide tools, and offer advice that makes a difference.

Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) works by taking the place of other opioids to prevent cravings and relieve 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 (buprenorphine/naloxone) e-prescribed to your local pharmacy the same day of your provider appointment. In others, laws require a drug test on file before a buprenorphine medication (including Suboxone) can be prescribed. It is always up to the discretion of the provider to determine if it is clinically appropriate to prescribe medication.
You will meet with a Workit afilliated clinician directly through the Workit Health web or phone app. Log in 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 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.

Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) is indicated for the treatment of opioid dependence in adults. Suboxone should not be taken by individuals who have been shown to be hypersensitive to buprenorphine or naloxone as serious adverse reactions, including anaphylactic shock, have been reported. Taking Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) with other opioid medicines, benzodiazepines, alcohol, or other central nervous system depressants can cause breathing problems that can lead to coma and death. Other side effects may include headaches, nausea, vomiting, constipation, insomnia, pain, increased sweating, sleepiness, dizziness, coordination problems, physical dependence or abuse, and liver problems. For more information about Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) see Suboxone.com, the full Prescribing Information, and Medication Guide, or talk to your healthcare provider. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

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 an affiliated 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 programs to offer telehealth even before COVID. I love being able to reach out to people who need help wherever they are.
