OUR MISSION

For us, this is personal.

Robin McIntosh and Lisa McLaughlin, Workit Health’s co-founders, experienced America’s broken addiction treatment system firsthand.

Lisa and Robin met in addiction recovery in 2009

… and immediately clicked. While they have both found stable, long-term sobriety, not everyone is so lucky. They watched, heartbroken, as many of their friends—kind, intelligent, hopeful people—fell to their addictions. They decided that something had to change.

In 2014, as professionals working in Silicon Valley, Robin and Lisa saw the way technology was changing the world and began to wonder why addiction treatment had been left out of the revolution. A person could check the oxygen saturation of their blood with an app or order alcohol to be delivered to their door from their phone, but addiction treatment? In many ways, it was still stuck in the 1930s. Lisa and Robin were convinced that a better way was possible, and set out to create it.
