We developed our platform as not only a resource for individuals but also a tool for employers to support their employees and help reduce the enormous risks and costs associated with alcohol and substance misuse within the workplace. It’s our mission and privilege to contribute to the healing of this growing population.”

Co-founded by Shaler Houser (CEO), Rich Jones (Chief Strategy Officer of youturn and CEO of FAVOR Grenville), and Elisabeth McKissick (VP of Membership Experience), youturn is also supported by an esteemed advisory council composed of business leaders, physicians, and researchers.
