When did you join RMHC? I returned to RMHC in October 2022
Why do you work at RMHC? I came back to RMHC because of all the exciting changes happening within the agency. RMHC understands the importance of starting services that were lacking in the community, such as school-based adolescent SUD services, having co-occurring substance use disorder treatment in our community so we don’t have to send people from our community miles from home to get the care they need. Starting to offer medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) services for people who have opioid use disorders, so they can start their journey and have every service needed to be successful. RMHC has a goal of – and is well on the way to – being a one-stop shop for the people in our community to get every service they need.
