The House of Acts is a non-profit residential treatment program in Vallejo committed to individual recovery and relapse prevention from alcohol and drug use disorders. We are in need of a licensed physician to serve as Medical Director. This individual shall supervise all medical services provided to Medi-Cal beneficiaries and shall be available on an on-call basis. We need a Medical Director by December 31, 2013.
The agency has been providing alcohol and drug treatment services to high-risk members of the community to fill a gap of need other public and private institutions have been unable to serve since its establishment in 1989. We have graduated hundreds of members of the community who have become sober, self-sufficient, and contributing members of the community.
Hattie Smith-Miles, Emeritus Executive Director of The House of Acts, has been widely praised by the City of Vallejo for her selfless achievements. She has commented in the past that she founded the organization over twenty years ago with a purpose to “combat the disease (addiction) that destroys families, weakens our communities, increases the crime rate, thrives within vulnerable populations, and engulfs individuals with hopelessness.”
In line with Miles’ purpose for The House of Acts, we continually pioneer programs to better assist those in need to overcome their addiction. This year, we hope to extend our reach to community members most in need of our services by qualifying for the Drug Medi-Cal program. With a Medical Director, we can accept members of the community who would not be able to enroll in our services without Medi-Cal.
Interested and qualified individuals should contact Rebecca Clutts, Administrator of The House of Acts, for more information. You can reach us by phone (707) 553-1042 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We at The House of Acts are committed to serving members of the community overcome their addiction. And we hope that a physician will be able to help us extend our reach to members of the community in need but currently underserved.
