Founded in 2017 by former doctors Yusuf, Maroof, and Sarim, Pelago has developed market leading programmes that combine counselling, digital CBT, device-based performance tracking, medication and peer support.
Substance use disorders are destructive, but also highly complex — stemming from social and environmental factors and deeply tied to mental health. These challenges are compounded by the stigma associated with substance misuse, which sees less than 8% of those with substance disorders seek treatment. And once that treatment is underway, progress is far from straightforward. Smokers report taking 15–30 attempts to quit, successfully, during which time long-term health damage continues, and over a third of recovering alcoholics relapse in their first year post-treatment.
Pelago enables employers and health plans to play a vital role in supporting their employees and members on issues of physical and mental wellness by delivering clinically validated care pathways for tobacco, alcohol and opioid addiction to the US and UK markets. Founded in 2017 by physicians Yusuf, Maroof, and Sarim, Pelago has developed market leading programmes that combine counselling, digital cognitive based therapy (CBT), device based performance tracking, medication and peer support.
