Working within a community-based treatment setting to provide support to drug and alcohol users aged 18 and over (dependent on service).
Services are designed to deliver an integrated combination of treatment interventions to meet the holistic needs of service users in the community-this includes clinical, psycho-social and wellbeing interventions for Service
Users in the community that are identified as having an alcohol or drug problem. Services will deliver client centred treatment using both harm reduction and abstinence based treatment approaches depending on the requirements of the individual client.
You may be required to manage a small caseload, provide appropriate harm reduction advice and guidance, carry out assessments, care plans and deliver structured 1:1 and group-work sessions including structured treatment programmes.
You will use your expertise in these tasks to support and develop your direct reports. You may on occasion be required to complete urine and oral swab testing to support clinical treatment.
Through care and integration with other services such as GPs, Hospitals, Mental Health services, Housing, Employment, Health Trainers, Probation, Police and Social Services you will help support clients through their changing lifestyle and aid them in preparing for the future.
