Cerebral, which provides online behavioral health treatment, expanded its virtual opioid use disorder treatment program to Colorado and Washington state. Cerebral launched the program in Florida on March 8, 2022. The company plans to continue to expand this new service line to additional states.
“This expansion shows Cerebral’s commitment to helping patients who are struggling with opioid use, many of whom don’t know where to turn for help,” said Cerebral’s newly appointed Chief Executive Officer David Mou. “We are providing high-quality care as part of a program that has shown great success in treating a problem that continues to plague the U.S.”
Cerebral patients who join the program will meet regularly with licensed prescribers to develop a personalized treatment plan, as well as manage or eliminate their opioid use, through medications like Suboxone. One-on-one counseling sessions supplement care. The sessions are virtual, so members can get care in the comfort and privacy of their home. Patients will take regular randomized drug tests during their check-ins with clinicians.
Cerebral treats a range of conditions, including anxiety, depression, ADHD, insomnia, bipolar disorder, and more. Cerebral recognizes the need for holistic treatment, as 43 percent of those struggling with opioid addiction also have a co-occurring diagnosis or symptoms of mental health disorders. Cerebral is on the path to becoming a comprehensive care provider so that it can pioneer value-based care in behavioral health.
Cerebral’s mission is to improve access to affordable, high-quality, long-term mental health care and opioid addiction treatment to everyone who needs it. Unlike traditional mental health care, Cerebral is accessible, convenient, affordable, and free of stigma. With several full-service monthly subscription plans, members receive online access to prescribing providers, behavioral counselors, and talk therapists—all from the comfort of home or anywhere else with an internet connection. Cerebral’s monthly service plans are accessible with or without insurance. Visits are done via video chat, and members can message their care team directly. They’ll even receive medications delivered straight to their door (if prescribed). Cerebral was founded and launched in January 2020.
