"I am delighted to welcome Dr. MacMaster to the GateHouse family. As a seasoned leader and addiction industry pioneer, he will further the GateHouse mission to bring transformative recovery services and compassionate care to all our clients," said Ed McDonough, Chief Executive Officer of GateHouse Treatment. "His expertise in behavioral healthcare will be invaluable as we continue to explore the vast potential of new and underutilized therapies and treatment modalities. I am thrilled to have someone of Sam's caliber and experience join our team, and I look forward to his contributions as we expand our efforts to improve the lives of clients who have trusted us to help them in their time of need."
"Dr. MacMaster is renowned throughout the industry as a thought leader in addiction treatment, and in his new position, Sam will continue to inform our strategy through his passion, clinical vision and insights in behavioral healthcare," continued Christopher Foster, COO of GH Recovery Solutions. "He joins us at a critical time for GateHouse as we experience unprecedented organizational growth and development.

Dr. MacMaster joins GateHouse from JourneyPure, which he co-founded and served as Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer.

Dr. MacMaster is on faculty as an associate professor at Baylor College of Medicine and a former tenured associate professor of the College of Social Work at the University of Tennessee.

"I am thrilled to join GateHouse at this exciting time," said Dr. MacMaster. "Both GateHouse Treatment and GH Recovery Solutions have demonstrated a unique ability to reach clients through their passionately dedicated teams and evidence-based treatment strategies. I chose to come to GateHouse because they believe, as I do, that addiction is not an acute disease; it requires a long-term continuum of care. GateHouse understands that and is on the front line of the opioid epidemic here in New Hampshire. I look forward to continuing to grow their clinical programs and to bring transformative experiences and treatments to clients so that they can get and stay healthy for a lifetime."
