Our Story

Sophie started Heal@Home in 2017 after the sudden death of her mother, who passed away from cancer due to alcohol-related complications. Her father passed away 25 years ago from the same disease. As a single mother of four, Sophie herself had struggled from depression and used alcohol as a coping mechanism.

These tragic occurrences coupled with her own journey has motivated Sophie to make it her life mission to help people with alcohol use disorder.

Having worked in hospitals, Sophie witnessed first-hand the lack of services available for patients with alcohol and drug use disorders and eating disorders. Families were visibly desperate and not receiving proper care from health institutions. She knew that there had to be a better way for people to receive faster and more customized care.

Heal@Home was created to provide confidential and private therapy in the comfort of a patient’s home. The company started by successfully offering detox services and on-demand programs delivered at home. To better respond to patients’ requirements for convenience and flexibility, Heal@Home has evolved now to offer 100% online therapy programs for substance use disorders and eating disorders.

A collaborative approach is necessary for the treatment of addictions and eating disorders. Sophie has assembled an incredible team of talented professionals who all share her mission of healing our fellow loved ones with compassionate care. You are not alone!
