About Ophelia

At Ophelia, our mission is to reinvent the drug rehab model - to replace folklore with science, drug dealers with doctors, and stigma with privacy, convenience, and choice. We’re a diverse collection of hearts and minds - a team of doctors, scientists, startup veterans, and White House advisors, backed by leading technology and healthcare investors working to re-imagine and re-build Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) treatment in America. We make medical best practices for OUD discreet, convenient, and affordable by providing FDA-approved medication, support, and therapy through a telehealth platform. We’ve recently raised a $15 million Series A funded by Menlo Ventures, Y Combinator, General Catalyst and more. This will expand access to treatment for opioid addiction and help to grow our founding team. Join us, save lives, and help fix healthcare for those who need it most.
