Leave home for
30, 60, or 90 days
Stay home and attend video calls with doctors, coaches, and groups from any location
High cost and care is often based on outdated or unsupported practices
1/10 the cost of traditional rehab and offers evidence-based practices
You need to be ready to quit entirely to get help
You can make a positive change
with or without 100% abstinence
after a rapid taper
Medication assistance keeps you comfortable and increases your likelihood of recovery.*
*Medical communities and governmental agencies endorse medication-assisted treatment. Studies show that people who take medication for alcohol or opioid use disorder increase their likelihood of long-term recovery.

What is inpatient rehab?
“Rehab” is the common term for residential or inpatient addiction treatment, in which the person receiving treatment stays in a facility full-time. This sometimes includes medically supervised detox. It is often heavily structured, with rules about phone usage, meeting attendance, sleep, and diet. Length of stay depends on many factors (including insurance and ability to pay), but is often 30 days or more. Some rehabs may prescribe medication, but many do not.
What is Workit Health?
Workit Health offers a convenient, all-virtual alternative to rehab, done totally through the Workit app. Workit Health’s clinical programs for opioid and alcohol use disorder include medication-assisted treatment, support groups, and coaching, from the privacy of home. Drug tests are mailed to your home and completed through the app, and medication is e-prescribed to your local pharmacy, when clinically appropriate.
