Employee Stories

What aspects of your current role do you most enjoy?
Angela Monico: One of the aspects of my role I enjoy the most is being involved in the process of change in treatment facilities, hospitals and primary care offices. I enjoy not only sharing with people who have the same views of opioid use disorder treatment, but also being able to share with those who see things differently. 


How are you inspired by patients in your current role?  
AM: When I hear how a patient takes “a leap of faith” to try something new or different, even though their fears are strong and very real, I am inspired to try harder to support the HCPs and support staff.  To engage in dialogue with staff about this medication just reminds me of the opportunity and responsibility we all have in fighting this growing epidemic.
 

Which of Indivior’s six guiding principles speak most closely to you in your day-to-day work? 
AM: Focusing on patient’s needs to drive decisions is absolutely what I think of and act on naturally. To see this as one of the guiding principles was very important to me. Training on the disease of addiction is so important.  I believe that by increasing knowledge in this area, we have a better chance of increasing access to treatment for the OUD population.
 
How would you describe Indivior’s culture? 
AM: When I started with Indivior over five years ago, I was so inspired by how Indivior incorporated our culture and our Guiding Principles.  I think it’s so important for us all to demonstrate it daily in all we do.  I continue to be encouraged by how, as employees, we are able to discuss and bring forth ideas and topics to support and improve our culture in changing times.
 
Can you tell us more about your background before Indivior? 
AM: Prior to working for Indivior, I practiced as a chemical dependency counselor social worker for over 10 years.  While working in the Syracuse, New York area, I worked closely with patients and became known for my care with this population and my belief and support in using appropriate medication along with counseling as a path to recovery. My passion and dedication to give hope to this population made me a good fit for Indivior.
 
What attracted you most about Indivior when you decided to join the company?  
AM: I was at first very apprehensive to leave my counseling role due to the importance of good direct care and counseling of patients. Then I realized that being able to be more active with a broader spectrum of HCPs to support patients appropriate for medication assisted treatment was a way to support individual patients as well.  This really encouraged me to join Indivior. I know I am exactly where I am supposed to be.
