Certified Peer Specialist - Marigold Health (Delaware)

Great opportunity for recovery coaches and peers to have a voice and make a difference!

Marigold Health is looking for an innovative peer/recovery coach to help people find their path to wellness and reduced substance use utilizing a new model for technology-enabled peer support. The opportunity may be for full or part-time depending on our needs and your experience. Please note: Candidates must live in or plan to relocate to DE.

Marigold Health exists to give every person with a mental health or substance use condition a place to feel heard. 

Our work is focused on providing evidence-based, virtual peer support to people interested in recovery and/or in reducing harm from substance use. 

We've designed a novel program that augments the work peers do with technology ranging from automated, interactive outreach to individuals to asynchronous, digital group discussions. Marigold's mobile app provides multiple avenues for people in recovery to build their recovery capital and expand their community networks.

More About Marigold Health

Marigold Health is an early-stage, rapidly growing startup providing services for a range of community-based mental health and substance use treatment providers as well as for managed care organizations.  We collaborate with eminent investigators at Brown University and Johns Hopkins and have been publicly recognized by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the American Psychiatric Association.  

Our core values are authenticity, candor, and ambition.  

We have an office in Boston, but during the COVID 19 epidemic most of our team members work virtually from their homes.  When COVID-19 restrictions relax, team members will be expected to attend occasional meetings at the office but will for the most part be able to continue working virtually.  Regular travel to partner clinics is a significant part of this role. Staff traveling to partner clinics will also need to abide by COVID-19 safety policies at these facilities.

Inclusion is at the core of what we do. We’re working to bring care to the most underserved and stigmatized patients. We actively welcome applicants from a wealth of different backgrounds (including but not limited to race, gender, educational background, and sexual orientation). We must have diversity on our team and in our mindsets to be successful in moving the needle on the deeply entrenched and systematic challenges we face.
Marigold Health is an equal opportunity employer.
