Recover from opioid use
Start feeling like yourself again. Get medically-assisted treatment from experts without leaving home.
After as little as five days of opioid use, dependence and withdrawal symptoms can occur. Medications can help you feel better while reducing your risk of relapse.
Considered to be the gold standard treatment for opioid use disorder, Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) balances the brain chemicals affected by chronic opioid use and reduces withdrawal symptoms.
Administered as a once-monthly injection at your local pharmacy, Vivitrol blocks the opioid receptors in the brain and reduces cravings. Vivitrol is best for those who have been opioid free for 7-14 days.
Frequently asked questions
Will buprenorphine help me feel better right away?
With opioid addiction, people are physically and emotionally depleted. When you give someone the first couple of doses of buprenorphine, they immediately feel better. When you see them for their follow-up, they say they feel like a new person. It’s not often that you’re able to see the result of treatment so quickly.

What can I expect from the Workit program?
Through Workit, you’ll meet with a clinician and develop a therapeutic relationship with them. You’ll have the support of a counselor. You’re not going to feel alone out there. We have groups you join and courses that you can do that are fun and not like being in school. It’s supportive. It’s a little something you carry in your pocket.

Is telemedicine an effective way to treat addiction?
With telemedicine, you can get the treatment that you need from the comfort of your home. Not everyone can find a babysitter to get to get to a treatment center. Workit Health was one of the first innovative providers to offer telehealth even before COVID. I love being able to reach out to people who need help wherever they are.
