Jim B. Graham, Maryland

Jim Graham recently retired from Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Since the late 1980s he has served the addiction treatment field in many capacities. He provided HIV risk-reduction services to opioid dependent individuals before finding a niche as an information technology expert, enabling an OTP to better manage program data. Taking those skills to a municipality as the Director of Information Systems for the Baltimore Substance Abuse System, Jim helped develop DrugStat. This city-wide performance measurement system facilitated the Baltimore Mayor’s initiative that expanded OTP access, and coordinated multi-institutional research efforts. As the Administrative Director for Johns Hopkins Bayview’s Addiction Treatment Services, Jim developed a computerized system to track patients moving between different levels of care, and an incentive system to reduce staff turnover in the OTP. From 2008-2012, Jim served as the President of the Maryland Association for the Treatment of Opioid Dependence and as Maryland’s representative to the AATOD Board of Directors.
