Online Suboxone treatment for Akron
Addiction treatment that works for Akron
As of August 11, Summit County had seen 123 confirmed overdose deaths in 2023, with an additional 29 deaths suspected to be caused by overdose. And these painful losses don’t address the thousands of people struggling with substance use disorder on a day-to-day basis. Akronites deserve better. Workit Health brings accessible, evidence-backed addiction treatment to those people in Akron who want to get their lives back from alcohol and opioids.
Workit Health’s experienced, expert clinicians can prescribe FDA-approved medications, including Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) and naltrexone, to reduce your cravings and assist you toward long-term recovery. Our program provides nonjudgmental, science-backed behavioral health support to help you achieve your recovery goals—no matter what they are. With Workit’s telemedicine program, you have access to all this support and more from the privacy and comfort of home. (One in-person appointment may be required.)
Akron is recognized as the birthplace of AA, but it can be more difficult to find clinical treatment beyond the 12 steps.

No matter where you live in Akron, you can access gold-standard care from home with our in-app medical appointments, courses, and recovery groups.

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.
