About Boulder

Boulder Care offers telehealth addiction treatment grounded in kindness, respect, and unconditional support. Our program is designed by addiction medicine specialists and people with lived experience of recovery. It is rooted in years of clinical expertise, proven research, and learnings from our patients.

our mission

A path to wellness

Our mission is to improve the lives of people with substance use disorders. We provide the medication, resources, and support to help our patients succeed on their own terms, wherever they are in their journey.

Boulder is welcoming new patients for opioid and alcohol use disorder treatment. Patients can self-enroll in our treatment program, or we offer several ways to refer patients to Boulder Care.

Proven treatment

Licensed addiction specialists can prescribe buprenorphine (Suboxone) as part of each participant's customized care plan

Dedicated care teams

Teams of care providers collaborate to support participants with expert medical care, peer recovery coaching, and care coordination

Easy-to-access digital platform

Patients can connect with their providers from anywhere through secure video and messaging on the Boulder App

Evidence-based recovery

Medication-based treatment works. Decades of research continue to show that offering medication as one component of a larger recovery program can save lives, improve quality of life, and save money. Yet only about 10% of those who would benefit from this treatment have access to it – Boulder can fix that.

Healthy blood flow and cognitive functioning

Medication allows the brain to restore balance

In the cycle of addiction, there are dramatic peaks and valleys—intense overstimulation on opioids, and dramatically reduced blood flow and impaired functioning when deprived of them.

Our values

Patients always come first

We reduce harm, celebrate milestones, and offer unconditional support.

Our company was designed to align its success with that of our patients, providers and partners. If ever there’s doubt, patients come first.

Our opportunity is also our duty

The more we grow, the more people are counting on us. We take this responsibility very seriously.

We’re grateful to customers and investors for recognizing that when we do the right thing for patients, ultimately, everyone will win.

To move the industry forward, follow the data

Our program is not only evidence-based, it's evidence-led. The industry has been plagued by harmful misinformation for too long.

Plans are built on science, guided by decades of real experience, and improved continuously by technology.

 Facts to change minds — empathy to change hearts

True human connection is necessary to drive meaningful change, so we empower our team to educate and advocate.

We’re eager to share stories that show why this work matters so much. We aim to meet skepticism with patience, and hostility with kindness.

Turn bold ideas into even bolder action

We seek to transform how addiction is perceived, medicine is practiced, and care is delivered.

Innovation must be sweeping, dramatic, and fast. We’re charging forward defiantly – because we can’t afford not to.

Strong individuals, stronger together

It is rare to find a truly diverse startup team. We’re so proud to be building one.

We construct bridges across insular worlds of clinical care, community service, technology development, and academia: uniting extraordinary minds under shared goals.
