Good humans only

Our Golden Rule

NorthStar has one unbreakable rule when it comes to hiring and building our company culture: good humans only.

Founded by a board-certified addiction medicine physician and an internationally-recognized data scientist, Together, they created a program where medical professionals and peer guides are a fully integrated team.

We are all family members and friends of people who have struggled with alcohol, and in many cases, we have experienced alcohol use disorder ourselves. This union of professional and personal experience allows us to deliver highly effective care with uncompromising empathy.
