Evo’s mission is to radically transform the field of addiction treatment.
The field of addiction treatment is broken. Most programs continue to use traditional methods from the 1930s, despite evidence that they do not work. Too many people cycle through treatment programs without seeing long-term recovery.
Evo emerged from the idea that addiction treatment needs to evolve.
We understand that to support others, we have to first support each other. We value relationships because it’s the most effective —and really, the only—way to promote true health and wellness. We want Evo to be a healthy and sustainable place to to work—with manageable caseloads and fair compensation. We also choose to make ethical company decisions that align with our values.
Core to Evo’s clinical program is respect for the client. We believe that clients already possess the inherent ability to respond effectively to the difficulties they face. Therapists work collaboratively with clients to examine the narratives they use to make meaning of their lives. Together, they work to open up new possibilities.
No judgment or moralizing
Care that integrates into your life
You don’t have to start to stop
Evo’s vision is to break the stigma of addiction and create a world of healthier people, families and communities.
We strive to support people to improve their relationships – with themselves, with substances, and with the world. We want to support as many people as possible, with as much dignity and empowerment as possible.
Ultimately, our vision is for addiction treatment to not to have to exist. We are here for as long as it’s valuable, but our goal for clients is for them to no longer need us because they’ve found a community of support. We want to create a world where quality care is accessible for everyone who needs it.
Our work with clients is not one-way: it is a co-creation of belonging, worth, purpose, compassion, and dignity.
