New Hope Addiction Care (NHAC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the treatment and prevention of the opioid epidemic through the use of Medication Assisted Treatment and multi-disciplinary care teams utilizing evidence-based clinical care, a patient-centered approach and best practices.
NHAC provides a broad range of comprehensive services including medication assisted treatment, psychological and counseling services, support groups, peer support and accountability programs, case management, information and referral, community outreach and educational programs.
Under the general supervision of the Executive Director* and in collaboration with the multi-disciplinary care team, you will work directly with patients to deliver Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and empower patients in their recovery journey via mediated communication, such as live video consults, telephone calls, or online chat.
In this high-impact, patient-facing role, you will deliver compassionate and empathetic patient engagement and monitoring assisted by New Hope Addiction Care’s clinical decision support tools and technology platforms. You will also coordinate with the rest of your multidisciplinary care team via tools and platforms provided by NHAC to guide treatment planning and delivery.
As New Hope Addiction Care’s model is built on telemedicine and the use of technology, this role is unique in the flexibility and convenience that it offers compared to traditional Physician positions. You will have the opportunity to work from the comfort of your own home and maintain flexible hours.
