Advanced Addiction Counselor
The Opioid Epidemic is a public health crisis with a highly effective but underutilized clinical intervention - millions of Americans are physically dependent on Opioids but only 10% of those likely to have OUD actually access treatment. Bicycle Health addresses this gap by maximizing accessibility, affordability, and overall quality of care by enabling highly qualified clinicians to reach patients broadly and efficiently through our online platform.

- Provide brief individual and/or group-based treatment using evidence-based interventions such as motivational interviewing, relapse prevention, problem-solving treatment and CBT.
- Create individualized treatment plans together with patients using a strengths-based approach to establish goals for therapy as well as objectives to achieve those goals.
