We provide effective and affordable treatment to recover from opiate use. For $65 a week you can get the therapy and medication you need to regain control of your life.

Unlike programs where you meet alone with a physician, we bring everyone together. People at different stages of recovery learn from each other, build collective wisdom, and hold each other accountable. Our counselors help you make a deep personal transformation and find purpose in life.

Dr. Jeff De Flavio, MD - Co-Founder & CEO Who lives and who dies hinges on what healthcare is available and how much it costs. I became a physician because I believe everyone should be able to access the help they need to get well. I was drawn to addiction medicine because structural discrimination and bias have stifled the most effective types of treatment. Drug users have been made into illegal and invisible people, their behavior criminalized and pushed out of sight. I founded Groups to bring the best of modern medical science to those most in need. It’s my hope, as it is Paul Farmer’s, that the benefits of such treatment may also “serve as an antidote to despair.” ...

Joy Sun - Co-Founder & COO I believe that health is not just medical—it’s social. I first learned that when I worked on access to HIV treatment, and saw how factors like family, culture, and income influenced one’s likelihood of getting sick and, once sick, of getting quality care. Nowhere is this more true than addiction. At Groups, we’re creating a solution that understands the social determinants that lead to addiction—and more importantly, to recovery. I want to not only redefine the medical model for treating addiction, but also change the way our society thinks about addiction and those affected by it.

Silas Howland - Co-Founder & CTO The health of the mind and the health of the body are inseparable, yet in the West this fact is often overlooked. With medicine for the body and therapy for the mind, our practice provides patients with the support and space to begin reengaging with life and activating their potential. At Groups, I participate in a reclamation of life and vitality, building tools and systems to help some of our most vulnerable and overlooked citizens regain confidence, health, and a sense of self-worth.

Groups is meeting the epidemic head-on. The unprecedented scale of opioid abuse requires a new way to treat this disease. We are a for-profit medical practice because it’s the best way to bring this solution to the most people possible. To confine this work to the realm of government and charity means we will never catch up, forever one step behind. 

We know what works. It's time to act.
