Annum Health is a New York based digital health startup. The company’s goal is to use digital health tools to help those with alcohol dependency.

Dr. Mark Willenbring, an addiction psychiatrist who works with the Alltyr Clinic in St. Paul, Minnesota is Annum Health’s chief medical officer. On his website, he describes the current addiction treatment system as “not built on science, but on an antiquated rehab model that has not changed much since 1955.” To address that need in an alternative way, Willenbring has focused his three-decade career on bringing together aspects of illness – substance abuse, mental and physical disorders – to treat chronic complex conditions.

Annum Health is potentially looking at employers as potential customers, as many people who may technically be heavy drinkers or binge drinkers – having five or more alcoholic drinks at the same time on the same day within the past month – don’t consider themselves as someone with a problem (and don’t seek treatment) even though it may be affecting their health.
