Company Profile
Simply put, the mission of the Sovereign Health Group is to help people gain control over their health and the various illnesses that may threaten it. Whether it is a mental disorder or a substance addiction, serious behavioral health problems such as these can manipulate one’s thoughts and cripple his or her actions. Sovereign’s approach combines the best of both worlds, incorporating a wide range of resources while still honing in on particular areas of concern. First of all, we view each patient with a holistic lens that identifies all of his or her specific needs. Once these needs are acknowledged, our multidisciplinary approach allows us to focus on creating treatment plans that provide patients with a full spectrum of behavioral health services that work for them respectively. Also, all of our programs incorporate educational elements to strengthen cognition and equip patients with the tools necessary to survive in day-to-day life after treatment.

I was facing the seven-year itch at my previous workplace. Thanks to EmploymentCrossing, I'm committed to a fantastic sales job in downtown Manhattan.
