Who we are

Boulder is a team of people from diverse backgrounds and industries aligned on a singular mission: expanding access to life-saving treatment.

We are committed to supporting all those who are suffering in the opioid epidemic—and will not stop until we have eradicated it entirely.

Our Values

Patients are the most important consideration in every decision we make.

Whether we’re bridging gaps or breaking down barriers, our goal is to serve patients.

Everyone has their own story. We reduce harm, celebrate success, and offer unconditional support.

We designed the company to align its success with 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.

Most patients and caregivers have been let down before – and deserve better. We take this seriously.

We’re grateful to our customers and investors for recognizing that when we do the right thing - expand access to affordable, effective treatment – everyone wins.

To move the industry forward, follow the data.

Our program is built on science, guided by medical leaders with decades of experience treating over 50,000 patients.

The addiction treatment industry has been plagued by harmful misinformation for too long.

Our team wrote the book on best practices. Technology helps us learn and improve.

Share facts to change minds; instill empathy to change hearts.

Statistics can reverse stigma – but to drive true change, we must foster human connection.

Boulder empowers compassionate thought leaders, arming our team with tools to educate and advocate. We meet skepticism with patience; hostility with kindness.

We’re thoughtful about the language we use, and always glad to share patient stories that show why this work matters.

Turn bold ideas into even bolder action.

Despite national attention, the opioid crisis is expected to worsen over the next 5 years. We intend to change that.

Boulder’s mission is to transform how addiction is perceived, medicine is practiced, and care is delivered.

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

Strong individuals, stronger together.

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

The Boulder Family is comprised of world-class clinicians, researchers, business strategists, technologists – each with very unique life stories and perspectives.

We’re committed to bringing the best version of ourselves to others. Together, we’ll work tirelessly to achieve our mission.
