Dr. Joseph Martin became interested and passionate about addiction medicine during his training and experiences in northeast Tennessee/southwest Virginia, in the epicenter of the narcotic and opiate epidemic. While there, he stepped into a medical director role for a rural clinic that served a huge catchment area of about an hour to 2 hours in any direction. During that time, he greatly enjoyed and respected the fulfillment and perspective that came with working with patients directly, side by side with the rest of his staff, in order to get patients back to their families, their careers, and back to their communities. He realized immediately that while this was not easy work, taking part and having a hand in the journey of his patients to sobriety was something he wanted to continue for the rest of his life.
