The A&D Clinician provides, at the advanced practice level, assessment, treatment, service coordination and, as required, urgent response to the most complex clients, frequently with co-
occurring disorders, who may also have serious functional impairment in the domains of physical health and personal, family, financial, occupational, and social life.
The A&D Clinician functions as a primary clinician utilizing a variety of specialized treatment modalities / therapies for individuals, groups of clients and / or their families.
This position will be working within a day treatment environment within the substance use team as well as providing some individual counselling where necessary.
Shifts of work are Monday to Friday 08 : 30 to 16 : 30 with weekends and statutory holidays off. The rotation includes on-call shifts.
If you are an experienced mental health professional and passionate about helping those in our community, you'll love working within our supportive and cohesive team environment.
