Workit Health is an addiction healthcare company providing online and in person care through web and native applications.
Workit was co-designed by co-CEOs Robin McIntosh and Lisa McLaughlin, launching in 2015. The two met while in long-term recovery for addiction. Workit is a smart phone and web-based treatment program for addiction and other mental health issues like eating disorders. Research into developing the program was supported by the National Science Foundation. The company is based in Ann Arbor, Michigan and has a clinic in Lafayette, California. It has also established pop-up clinics. In 2016 Workit had around 200 counselors on its staff. In 2017 it received a license to provide medically assisted treatment and opened an outpatient program for opioid addiction. In 2019 it raised a Series A round of funding led by Blue Cross Blue Shield Venture Partners.
The company provides remote access to apps that include online text and video chats with counsellors, in addition to 5- or 10-minute courses developed to deal with addiction. Workit also has a physical clinic where they hold group recovery meetings and do medication consultations. It charges a weekly subscription fee for access. Workit users are provided with a selection of six personalized modules to work through over the span of between ninety days and two years. All services are available online. Programs are based upon cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing.
