General Overview
The mobile substance use disorder clinic, or SUD Clinic, will provide on-site rapid assessment, treatment initiation, and stabilization at primary care clinics across the Partners Healthcare System. This mobile clinic will be staffed by a multidisciplinary team, which includes a physician, a social worker, a recovery coach, and a nurse care manager. The care model will consist of rapid access to low threshold evaluation and treatment for individuals identified with SUD within primary care practices. Patients will be assessed by the team and a patient-centered treatment plan will be determined. Pharmacotherapy will be initiated promptly for appropriate patients and linkages will be made to the suitable level of care within the community. Patients who cannot directly be connected to ongoing addiction treatment services will be managed by the SUD Clinic team on a transitional basis until linkage is successfully achieved.

The Recovery Coach (RC) will provide peer recovery support services to patients with substance use disorder (SUD) and will assist patients in achieving sustained recovery. This position will be working in the SUD Clinic and will be part of a clinical team embedded in multiple a primary care practices. The RC will facilitate patient access to recovery-oriented substance use disorder treatment, resources, and community recovery groups. The RC will bridge the segregated treatment system into a more holistic care model through providing support across multiple systems and frameworks of care. This position will maintain ongoing patient support regardless of relapse and will serve as a motivator, ally, role model, problem-solver, and advocate for patients with substance use disorders. The RC should possess thorough understanding of community culture to address the barriers to successful recovery, better tailor health messages, and provide links to community resources and treatment options.

This position covers all offices of NSPG, but primary sites will be Lynn and Salem.
