Jacob graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2013 with his MSW and started working with River City Comprehensive Counseling in July of that year. Mr. Rheaume was initially hired as a Mental Health Skill Building and Intensive In-Home counselor. Jacob was then promoted to program director of these programs and worked in that role while simultaneously managing River City’s Crisis Stabilization program. In February of 2016, Jacob was appointed to the role of program director of River City’s Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) where he initiated, developed, and grew what is now a thriving Medication Assisted Treatment center. Jacob was instrumental in development of the OTP’S policies and procedures, and remains the company’s ultimate authority on MAT compliance with regard to SAMSHA, DBHDS, Joint Commission, and DMAS.
During the spring of 2017, River City saw the continued devastation caused by the opioid epidemic signaling the need for additional treatment options for individuals in the Shenandoah Valley. River City opened Staunton Treatment Center and Jacob assumed the position of Regional Director/Compliance Officer. Since that time, Jacob has supervised both clinics, and was most recently promoted to Chief Clinical Officer.
Jacob Rheaume has earned his LCSW and CADC. In his free time, Jacob plays the ukulele competitively and rescues sugar gliders from breeding mills.
