Dr. Josh Leiderman is a practicing clinician and the Assistant Medical Director of Substance Use and Recovery Programs at La Familia. He has certification in Family Medicine with additional Board Certification in Addiction Medicine.

His practice since has been dedicated to care for the disadvantaged and underserved. He was previously on the faculty in Family Medicine at UCLA and UNM, and has spent the past five years working in New Mexico communities and health centers like La Familia.
