Program Specialist, PMHCNS-BC
Juliet Medoff has a bachelor of science degree in nursing, and a master’s degree in the specialty area of psychiatric mental health nursing. She has worked in a variety of clinical settings for over 30 years. Prior to becoming a program specialist at Go Sober, she worked as an educator, consultant, therapist, and client advocate. Being a program specialist enables her to share her scientific knowledge, and her interest in connecting with a wide range of people to offer helpful information, emotional support, and most importantly, hope for a future without the control of alcohol.
Juliet finds it especially rewarding to be one of the first staff people to meet potential clients at Go Sober not only because of the meaningful interactions that result, but also because she knows how difficult it can be to take that first step of asking for help. She also knows that doing so is ultimately validating and empowering.

Pleased to Meet You!
Hi! I’m Juliet.
Every day I meet with a variety of people who have unique stories to tell about their histories with alcohol. Among these different experiences is the common and important question of why they have not been able to quit drinking for good no matter what or how many times they have tried previously.
I always feel excited to share information about what our outpatient alcohol treatment program has to offer, not only because of the holistic focus and 83% success rate, but also because I know that people leave our program feeling empowered, energized, positive, and hopeful about their future lives without alcohol.
If you are ready, we would be honored to help you as well! Please schedule a free and confidential appointment below.
