DynamiCare Health is a digital care company founded by Eric Gastland and David R. Gastfriend in 2016 to address substance use disorder. Phone app and desktop technology provide virtual substance testing, advanced geo-targeting appointment verification, remote recovery coaching, and self-guided therapy modules.

DynamiCare has received three grants from the U.S. National Institute of Health, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. The program won the 2018 Ohio Opioid Technology Challenge[1], the 2018 Harvard Business School Alumni New Venture Competition[2], and a 2019 New York Times Good Tech Award[3]. DynamiCare has been featured by various news outlets including the New York Times,[4] ABC News[5], and CBS News[6]

Digital care programs have large-reaching implications for increasing accessibility to, and lowering the cost of, addiction treatment and continuing care. The emerging digital health and telehealth space for addiction includes Sober Grid, Chess, and Pear Therapeutics.
