Mission

We’re on a mission to change the way addiction is treated in America.

“We deserve better than waitlists and rehab bills.” Lisa and Robin

Workit co-founders Robin McIntosh and Lisa McLaughlin

The traditional system is broken. It's time for a change.

For us, this is personal. Robin and Lisa, Workit Health’s co-founders, both experienced America’s broken addiction treatment system firsthand. 

Experienced technologists, they saw Silicon Valley revolutionize everything from communication to transportation. Why was substance use disorder care stuck in the 1930’s? 

Traditional treatment is expensive, judgmental, and difficult to find. Many centers aren’t regulated and don’t utilize the latest research in their care. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Robin and Lisa are some of the the lucky few who found long-term recovery from addiction in America. An estimated 1 in 10 people don’t receive treatment for addiction. Robin and Lisa saw the high costs of a broken system firsthand.

For too long substance use disorder treatment has been one-size-fits all. Not everyone can leave their job or loved ones for a thirty day rehab program, or afford the out-of-pocket costs associated with inpatient programs. 

Robin and Lisa knew people struggling with addiction deserve better. They’ve brought clinicians, advocates, and technologists together to build a better type of addiction care. 

Workit Health brings gold standard addiction care to the privacy of home, combining research-backed therapeutic programming with FDA-approved medication. We are harm reduction-based and celebrate small steps in the right direction.  

Workit Health is the recovery experience Robin and Lisa wished they had when they got sober. Affordable. Accessible. Non-judgmental.

Workit Health now offers medication for opioid and alcohol use disorder in Michigan, California, New Jersey, Washington, and Alaska, and will be opening soon in additional states. Our evidence-based online therapy program is available across the United States. Health plans, employers, and state and local governments partner with Workit Health to cover the cost of care. 

Our headquarters is in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with a remote team of tireless advocates, clinical experts, and mad geniuses dispersed around the United States and beyond.

Addiction treatment really can be as simple as a video visit from your phone. Workit Health and our clinicians are licensed experts. Our outcomes prove that addiction care doesn’t have to cost $30,000 to change your life.
