Our core program content blends a variety of proven and well-studied interventions. We didn’t just make this stuff up (see our team of experts here), and we rely on methodologies and practices that have been rigorously tested in clinical trials. That means the folks using Workit are invited to explore leading strategies for arresting and managing addictive behaviors. We match the exercises you see to the needs you express. To do that, we draw on a host of behavioral techniques. The following is a brief list of some of these approaches along with links to representative articles documenting their efficacy:
