By entering into the state of Ohio, Recovery Delivered is able to provide Buprenorphine and Naloxone doctors in Ohio to anyone with a phone for weekly follow-ups and counseling sessions 100% online.
"Ohio was a state that we have been wanting to enter for some time now. The state has been hit hard by the opioid epidemic and has one of the highest Opioid death rates in the country. We felt we can do a lot of good in the state and we plan on just that," said Chief Marketing Officer Marcus Hansen.
Ohio has the second-highest rate of death by opioid in the United States, according to drugabuse.gov. Currently there are over 2,100 providers of Buprenorphine/Naloxone registered with SAMHSA.gov, however not all are in practice, they simply have the license.
Recovery Delivered offers online Buprenorphine/Naloxone prescribing, one-on-one counseling, group therapy all online through their telemedicine platform. This advancement in addiction treatment is moving the space to a more patient-centric model. "You can order a car on your phone and one shows up. If you want your favorite restaurant but don't want to get dressed and leave the house, you can have it delivered. Our economy is moving towards a consumer-centric model. We are here to bring that model to the addiction space. By providing an online option to people in treatment, we remove the need to travel to clinics each week for follow-ups. We also deliver the medication to the patient's home. Finally, because we don't have a physical location, our pricing is much lower than most physical locations. Our job is to treat everyone that needs it, and price shouldn't be a barrier to recovery," said CMO Marcus Hansen.
