Addiction Psychiatrist, Internal Medicine in Addiction and Nurse Practitioners – New York City!

CATCH (Consult for Addiction Treatment and Care in Hospitals)

Implementation of CATCH is a critical component of the Mayoral Healing NYC initiative – in which the New York City Health + Hospitals will become a system of excellence, delivering increased and effective opioid services.

Addiction consultation services provided by CATCH teams are designed to address needs for addiction care expertise in service settings where traditionally it has been absent. There is a high number of patients being diagnosed with Substance Use Disorder (SUD) across H+H (50K per year) and a very low number of these patients enrolling in addiction treatment (4K per year). With an initial focus on inpatient services, CATCH teams will be a critical means for engaging patients identified with SUD, treating them, and providing a connection to ongoing care.

Consult for Addiction Treatment and Care in Hospitals (CATCH) is a new and innovative addiction consult service that will be available at:

NYC Health + Hospitals/Metropolitan- Searching for Psychiatrists.

NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island-Searching for Psychiatrists, IM-Addiction and NPs.

These exciting opportunities are employed through Physician Affiliate Group of New York P.C. (PAGNY). PAGNY is proudly affiliated with NYC Health + Hospitals, which is the country’s largest public hospital system.
