We are excited to announce that Dr. Sara Koenig has joined the team as our first Medical Director. This is a major step in bringing full-time integrated care to our clients, by offering medical treatment within our organization.
As the Medical Director, Sara will provide and supervise direct medical care for all our clients, and help us to continue to build a true integrated and integrative medicine practice. Sara brings years of training and experience in traditional clinical management of addictions and co-occurring disorders to the Green Hill team.
Our CEO Tripp Johnson said “I couldn’t be more thrilled to have a true leader and innovator joining the team. We’ve worked together for the past year, sharing a number of clients between Green Hill and Triangle Wellness and Recovery. Dr. Koenig has a nuanced, sophisticated understanding of substance use and mental health disorder and even more importantly, she is aligned with our values and vision for what treatment can look like.”
Dr. Koenig graduated from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill in 2006, and is triple board certified in Addiction Medicine, Clinical Pathology and Transfusion Medicine. She has held various positions as an addiction medicine physician, clinical faculty member at multiple universities, and medical director.
Sara now owns her own private practice, Triangle Wellness & Recovery with the vision of providing personalized, evidence-based integrative care for substance use disorders, behavioral addictions, and chronic pain in a compassionate and innovative multidisciplinary setting. She is a national consultant on the topics of addiction and harm reduction and is a member of both the American Society for Addiction Medicine (ASAM) and the American Association of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP)
