New Season has been a leading provider of care for opioid use disorder (OUD) since 1986, with more than 80 addiction treatment centers in 20 states nationwide. 

Our mission is to triumph over opioid addiction by integrating treatment, counseling, and compassionate care that saves lives. This means that we take a comprehensive approach to addressing addictive illness, ensuring that our patients are provided with the proper tools to succeed in their recovery.

Our interns will work with a multidisciplinary team consisting of Medical Director, Program Director, Treatment Service Coordinator, Counselors and Nurses to ensure the overall safety and wellbeing of patients and the authentic facilitation of the program.
