HOW WE ROLL
Medicine Werx was founded in 2012 by Teren Overbeck. After struggling with a rough childhood and spending a majority of his youth in at-risk programs and behavioral treatment centers, Teren utilized Medicine Werx to overcome a handful of adverse circumstances.
Our founder started a blog about his passions that went viral in 2010. After quickly gaining 20K followers in just 6 months from blogging about his passions, he quickly realized he had an opportunity to change his life and start a career. What started as a blog and an online community called Mental Medicine grew into the brand Medicine Werx
