Hamilton Baiden had it all-a wonderful marriage, three healthy children, and a successful career. Or so it appeared from the outside. But this facade of having it all together began to crumble at home. Rich and Hamilton discuss his story and how he would eventually get help. Hopefully, his story will give someone in a similar situation the courage to evaluate where they are and course correct or get the help they need.
Hamilton Baiden is President at Heritage Health Solutions. Heritage CARES (Comprehensive Addiction Recovery Education & Support) is a substance misuse program that is entirely digital and proven to help individuals struggling with addiction issues and navigate recovery. The Heritage CARES Program was created under Hamilton’s leadership fueled by his desire to help others struggling with substance use disorder.
Prior to joining Heritage, Hamilton was Executive Vice President of Sales at Avella Specialty Pharmacy where he oversaw the growth of the business from a small regional pharmacy to the largest independent specialty pharmacy in the nation. His knowledge and understanding of the pharmacy industry were developed throughout his professional career, working in various roles for prominent pharmaceutical manufacturing companies, including MedImmune, Serono, Daiichi, and Sanofi.
A graduate of The Citadel in Charleston, SC, with strong ties to his community, Hamilton served as Chairman of the Board of Directors for a nonprofit organization dedicated to animal welfare, Altered Tails, and currently serves on the National Board of the American Liver Foundation Southwest Division. Hamilton is also in recovery and committed to helping others.
