Introduction: Care Navigator in MAT Program

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! My name is Kristi. I work as a Care Navigator in the MAT program at a mental health/substance abuse treatment facility. Previous to this position, I worked as a residential chemical dependency counselor within the same company. 

My job primarily consists of community outreach and facilitation of treatment services for individuals who are hospitalized. I have only been in the MAT program since July of this year and I am amazed at how much progress I have seen with patients who are have been induced on Suboxone. In the near future, I will play a vital role in educating patients in the hospital setting about opiates and medication that can help them with their addiction. I feel like I still have so much to learn when it comes to all of this, but I'm excited to play a part in combating the opiate crisis. I'm sick of seeing and hearing about people in my community dying from this disease. 

I'm really glad I came across this website!
