Biography:

In October 2020, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center named Russell E. Spieth, Ph.D., as director of outpatient services at Rosary Hall. In this role, Dr. Spieth provides leadership and operational oversight of ambulatory addiction treatment services, as well as staff and program development for the expanding continuum of Rosary Hall. He also ensures close coordination with Rosary Hall’s inpatient detoxification services, inpatient behavioral health and other hospital programs.

Dr. Spieth's diverse experiences helped expand Rosary Hall’s capabilities, which include mental health and dual diagnosis treatment, including serious and persistent mental illness.

Rosary Hall includes an interdisciplinary team of physicians, fellows, nurse practitioners, social workers, counselors and now peer recovery support. The team serves hundreds of patients, many with co-occurring mental illnesses, per year. Ranked as a top provider in Ohio by Help.org, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center is a recognized leader in substance use disorder diagnosis, treatments and innovations.

Previously, Dr. Spieth’s most recent role was as managing director of campus mental health and consulting and training, and assistant professor of psychiatry, at Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED). In that position, he:

  • Oversaw Project ECHO educational clinics on medication for opioid use disorders. Project Echo is a nationally and globally recognized model for bringing best-practice health care to patients who can’t get it because of where they live.
  • Collaborated with NEOMED’s Center for Student Wellness and Counseling Services staff to introduce enhanced clinical services and monthly outreach programming.
  • Supervised programming for the Ohio Program for Campus Safety and Mental Health.

Concurrently, Dr. Spieth served as a counselor at The Counseling Center at The University of Akron. Prior, from 2016 to 2019, Dr. Spieth served as senior consultant/trainer of motivational interviewing at NEOMED, where he created and provided interdisciplinary training on motivational interviewing to community partners and pharmacy and medical students. He also conducted training and mentoring on psychosocial aspects of substance use disorder treatment for multidisciplinary professionals. His past experience includes service as director of family services, FrontLine Service; predoctoral intern, The Counseling Center, The University of Akron; program manager, MHS; and counselor and vocational counselor, Su Casa Methadone to Abstinence Residence, Lower Eastside Service Center, in New York, NY.

Dr. Spieth has given more than 35 lectures nationally and internationally. He has generated more than $7 million in state and federal grants to enhance substance use disorder programming. His training interests include preparing the primary care workforce to address substance use disorders, increasing community collaboration to address mental health issues, and using Project ECHO to change practice and create a new narrative in health care.

Dr. Spieth earned his Doctor of Philosophy in American Psychological Association (APA) accredited Collaborative Program in Counseling Psychology from the University of Akron in 2014; Master of Education in Counseling Psychology from  Columbia University in 2001; and  Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Minor in Biology from Florida State University in  1994.
