Michelle Maloney, PhD, is executive clinical director of Mental Health and Addiction Recovery Services for Rogers Behavioral Health and is responsible for those programs system-wide. She has worked for more than two decades in the mental health and addiction field and is a passionate advocate for those struggling with substance use. Throughout her career, Dr. Maloney has made several television appearances, including on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Anderson Cooper, and an episode of Intervention on A&E.

Dr. Maloney joined the United States Army when she was 17 to pursue a bachelor’s degree in politics. After the Army, she attended the Pennsylvania state police academy and was impacted by how many people were being incarcerated as a result of substance use.

Dr. Maloney started with a substance use organization in a role similar to a residential care specialist. She went back to school to become a licensed counselor (LPC for mental health and CAADAC for substance use). She is also skilled in nonprofit leadership and holds a PhD in Corporate Leadership from Alvernia University.

Previously regional vice president of operations for Sunspire Health, Dr. Maloney has been with Rogers since September 2018. She writes policies and procedures to ensure compliance, as well as protocols, and she participates in substance use research. Among her many achievements, she led a team in a large undertaking to ensure that Naloxone is available in all of our programs throughout the System, and in November 2022, this critical medication was used in Brown Deer and saved a life.

Dr. Maloney is dedicated to the behavioral health field, currently serving on the addiction treatment and quality committee for the National Association for Behavioral Healthcare. She completed a term as president of the Wisconsin International Certification and Reciprocity Certification (ICRC) chapter, in addition to a term on the Pennsylvania ICRC board.

Dr. Maloney’s lifelong goal is to eliminate stigma, emphasizing substance use is treatable and afflicts people of all socioeconomic levels, races, nationalities, and educational levels.
