Our mission is to empower people to overcome addictions

It all starts by combining technology, healthcare and design.

Our Story

Our founders started Quit Genius after seeing first hand that the “traditional” model of addiction treatment is broken. Every day, 1,600 people die and countless more suffer in silence because 92% of people with an addiction do not get access to evidence-based treatment.

At Quit Genius, we believe that there is a better approach. We built the world’s first technology-enabled digital clinic for the modern era, that is dedicated to helping individuals conquer their addictions and by doing so, we help payers curb the high cost of addiction care.

Our mission is nothing short of helping 100 million people overcome their substance addictions by 2030.
