About the role

Ophelia's mission is to reinvent drug & alcohol rehab in America: to replace folklore with science, drug dealers with doctors, and stigma with privacy, convenience, and choice. We’re a diverse collective of hearts and minds - healthcare providers, scientists, technologists, and policy experts - backed by leading venture capital investors to re-imagine and re-build the addiction treatment industry.

Ophelia makes medical best practices for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) private, convenient, and accessible, using a novel telehealth platform to provide FDA-approved medications, chronic support, and therapy at low cost. We have recently raised a $15 million Series A investment (Menlo Ventures, Y Combinator, General Catalyst, and others) to expand access to treatment across America and grow our founding leadership team. Join us, save lives, and help fix healthcare for those who need it most.

Why you should join Ophelia

Ophelia is a venture-backed healthcare startup that helps people quit opioids and restore quality of life without going to rehab. We make medical best practices discreet, convenient, and affordable – offering FDA-approved medication, support, and therapy through in-person and telehealth modalities. Our mission is to re-invent the drug rehab industry using evidence-based medicine (MAT/MOUD), technology, and a commitment to patient privacy and choice.

For context: opioid overdose is the #1 cause of death for Americans under 50, but 80% of 3 million Americans with opioid use disorder (OUD) are not getting treatment. Most have jobs, families, and privacy concerns, making it easier to get withdrawal medication from a drug dealer than go to rehab. Meanwhile, 2/3rds of rehabs do not offer medication at all, leading 90% of patients to relapse in the first 3 months. As a result of inadequate access to proven treatment, an American dies of an opioid overdose every 11 minutes.

We are a team of world-renowned doctors, scientists, startup veterans, and White House advisors, backed by leading technology and healthcare investors (Y Combinator, General Catalyst) to re-imagine and re-build addiction treatment in America.

Join us, save lives, and help fix healthcare for those who need it most.
