Groups Recover Together was founded to make treatment for opioid use:
Deciding to stop using and change your life is worthy of our respect. Addiction is a disease, not a choice.
The best evidence-based care should be available where you need it when you need it.
Ability to pay should never be a barrier to getting treatment.
If you want to regain control of your life, you’ve come to the right place.
Groups Recover Together is a community of physicians, counselors and recovering opioid users you can rely on for affordable and convenient help.
Everything we do is based on the best medical science. Our treatment community provides medication (Suboxone) and weekly meetings with other people recovering from opioid use. While such medication should typically be used for 18-24 months, the community at Groups is for life.

Meet our Founders
Dr. Jeff De Flavio, MD, Founder
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 Cooper, Co-Founder
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 Recover Together, 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
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 Recover Together, 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.
