Ms. Nicolosi has been devoted to reducing barriers to care and improving quality OTP care across New England. Ms. Nicolosi helped develop protocols for direct admission to OTPs from detox and acute care facilities, trained hospital maternity departments in best practices for pregnant women and newborns, integrated medical residents within the OTP, and had a significant impact on reducing the stigma of OUD in the regional medical community. Ms. Nicolosi then assumed oversight of OTPs across New England and was charged with establishing one of the first Hubs in the VT Hub and Spoke program. Ms. Nicolosi became a state Regional Director and assumed responsibility for network management of all levels of care. Her experience helped improve the quality of mental health and substance use disorder services for adults and children throughout the system. Ms. Nicolosi became the Massachusetts SOTA and then VP of Addiction Treatment Services for Lahey Health Behavioral Services where she is now focused on using telelearning to share best practices for OUD.
