Monte Nido & Affiliates Medical Director Molly Perlman, MD, MPH has recently achieved board certification in Addiction Medicine, complimenting her certification in Adult Psychiatry and allowing Monte Nido and Oliver-Pyatt Centers programs the opportunity to more optimally support adult women struggling with co-occurring substance use disorders.

Chief Medical Officer Joel P. Jahraus, MD, FAED, CEDS says, “Having a physician overseeing our programs who is board certified in both Adult Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine – and that also has a Masters Degree in Public Health – clearly highlights the quality and the value of the care we render. It demonstrates to our clients and families that we take the care of their loved ones very seriously by securing highly qualified staff that deliver the best-practice care. Dr. Perlman consults regularly on pre-admission reviews and partners with clinical teams on the ongoing care of these dually diagnosed clients.”

Dr. Perlman confers, “Having dual-certification in Adult Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine reinforces Monte Nido & Affiliates ability to treat our clients. We often see women come through our doors with an eating disorder and co-occurring substance use disorder and this additional credential solidifies that we are well-equipped to treat these co-occurring presentations.”

Dr. Perlman earned her undergraduate degree in Biology from Duke University and her Medical Degree and Masters in Public Health from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. She completed her psychiatry residency training at the University of Miami and Jackson Memorial Hospital, and additionally served as Chief Resident. Dr. Perlman recently completed her Addiction Medicine board exam and ranked in the top quartile of 1000+ physicians.
