As AtlantiCare continues to prioritize addiction medicine services, the new Medical Director of Addiction Services will serve as a highly visible leader within our health system. In this role, leaders throughout the system will look to you to help establish standards and provide recommendations for evidence-based improvements for how we engage in substance use and recovery-related work for all our medical teams throughout our hospitals, emergency departments and ambulatory care locations.

Primary duties of the new Medical Director will be split to provide direct patient care with scheduled appointments and clinic hours two days a week; dedicating one day each week to program development, including overseeing pharmacotherapy services and management of other providers, as well as providing consultation as the addiction medicine specialist throughout the system and for the patients admitted for medical stabilization; and two to three days overseeing the outpatient bridge clinics and collaborating with our two FQHC programs. Additionally, the Medical Director will provide policy and strategy for AtlantiCare’s Healing Atlantic County initiative, a program developed to help combat the opioid epidemic in southeastern New Jersey. 

The successful candidate should be an experienced BC Psychiatrist with ABPM certification for Addiction Medicine, preferably with some experience in building or leading substance use programs.
