GoMo Health was established in 2013. Leveraging years of applied research in the “digital-to-human” behavioral and cognitive science of human motivation, activation, and resiliency, Bob Gold, Chief Behavioral Technologist and Founder, began applying BehavioralRx®, his (then) emerging digital therapeutic engagement science to engage with millions of underserved and vulnerable patients, caregivers, and families with mental health challenges ranging from anxiety and depression to mental illness, developmental challenges such as pediatric autism, and substance use.  

Breaking the Silence of Addiction: The Need for Action 


Substance use disorder (SUD) in the U.S. has risen dramatically since the COVID-19 pandemic began. According to the 2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 40.3 million people aged 12 or older had a past-year substance use disorder and 1 in 11 workers suffers from SUD. New national and state legislation urges employers to implement solutions and programs that address this crisis.   


Each one of us has seen family members, loved ones, friends, and even co-workers affected. Given that the vast majority of U.S. adults with a SUD are currently employed, employers are in a unique position to play a significant role in combatting this national crisis and directly impacting their organizations. 

Introducing the workplace of the future 


Employees spend more time with their work “families,” whether in person or virtually, than anyone else. How do employers structure their organizations to be supportive of employees who are currently challenged with undiagnosed SUD, in recovery or impacted by mental health issues that might put them on a negative path? The answer is an investment in employee behavioral health and wellness to create a culture of safety, non-bias, and compassion. 


Recovery Pathways: Workplace (RPW) was born with these responsibilities in mind. RPW is an interactive digital therapeutic that includes a suite of resources for both employer and employees to foster a recovery-ready workplace. 


What is a Recovery-Ready Workplace?  


It’s an environment that supports people when they suspect they need help, enables them to feel safe expressing their vulnerabilities, guides them to utilize resources available, and most importantly, views employees in recovery as a positive asset to the organization. 

Why should you invest in a Recovery-Ready Workplace? 


The following case study showcases GoMo Health’s Rimrock Recovery Pathways program that has improved employment opportunities, quality of life, health and wellbeing of participants touched by substance use disorder (SUD). 

Rimrock Recovery Pathways Case Study 


Rimrock is the largest drug and alcohol addiction treatment center in Montana, serving adults with substance use and co-occurring disorders. Rimrock views addiction as a whole person illness affecting an individual’s emotional, physical, spiritual, and social well-being. 


Program description: Recovery Pathways is a digital care management program that augments Rimrock’s in-person treatment for people with a substance use disorder (SUD) diagnosis who are in treatment/ recovery.  

Organizational goals:  


  • Extend impact of in-person SUD treatment programs with a “digital concierge” that delivers personalized content, resources, nurturing messages, and access to staff — without adding FTEs. 
  • Enhance clients’ ability to initiate digital and secure communications with the care team – including case managers, counselors, and peer support – to provide 24/7 support.
