InUnity Alliance (IUA) has brought together two outstanding New York state-wide Member organizations to further strengthen the voice to address both mental health and substance use challenges faced by New Yorkers everywhere. This presents an exciting opportunity for a Mental Health and Substance Use Professional to lead this newly merged member organization of over 225 NYS providers at a time when addictions and mental health challenges are dramatically affecting families everywhere. Such a strategic partnership, made up of The Coalition for Behavioral Health, the Alcoholism & Substance Providers of New York State (ASAP) & the New York Association of Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Providers (NYAASAP) forms a single collective voice to advocate for an increased access to care, important public policy initiatives, provide robust technical assistance and training for members, and ultimately the increase of services provided by its members throughout the entire State of New York.

Reporting to and working with the Board of Directors, this leader will enhance a vision and strategy to best position IUA within the ever-evolving behavioral health marketplace and translate these priorities into actions and prioritized initiatives. Most critically, the CEO will lead in the development of a successful policy and advocacy agenda to drive meaningful social change in the areas of addiction and mental health care.

New York State presents an enormous range of attractions as a place to make one’s home or travel on vacation….whether one’s preference is to live in a scenic rural community, suburbia, or a large metropolitan area….in a state with an abundance of cultural and recreational attractions, the best of higher education opportunities, or close proximity to mountains, lakes, and the Atlantic.  This role allows for a family to “have it all,” given one’s interest in living in or visiting communities with much ethnic diversity and culture, or in the Adirondacks, near Niagara Falls, the St. Lawrence River, or the beautiful Hudson Valley. And with its excellent transportation systems, New Yorkers are able to enjoy a lifestyle that allows for taking advantage of the best features of this beautiful part of the country, including of course, The Big Apple.
