Kipu was built inside an Addiction Treatment Center for Addiction Treatment Centers!

Kipu was written in the addiction treatment world and exclusively serves addiction treatment and behavioral health. We start with a full featured pre-admission mini-CRM and run every aspect of the episode of care with medication management, group and individual sessions, Golden Thread and over 80 laboratory interfaces for urine, clinical, hair testing and pharmacogenomics.

So long as you do not delay, we will have you fully implemented and trained in 30 days or less. If we miss that goal, we’ll credit you the FIRST FIVE MONTHS of monthly invoices, up to $5,000.  Read our guarantee.
