Full Time, Salaried, Benefits Eligible.
We challenge the professional hierarchy by putting the trained, licensed professional with the most rapport and knowledge of substance use disorders, clients’ symptoms, family dynamics, and psychosocial needs in charge of the treatment team: the SUD Counselor.
Through rapport building, diagnostic interviewing, and individual & family case conceptualization, this person determines the pace, focus, and coordination of treatment. What should other professionals involved in the case be doing to supplement your clinical work? How should the treatment team prioritize presenting problems? What’s really going on in this case that people have been missing? How should the team change the course of treatment to overcome resistance or stagnation? You’re the captain, but you also have a team that brings various strengths and perspective, so make sure the team acknowledges and avails itself of them.
Substance abuse and mental health disorders, family systems, and multi-disciplinary treatment teams. Hopefully these sound up your alley because this is basically the rest of your job. Healthy Minds believes that, with rare exception, substance abuse and mental health treatment cannot be effective if we are not addressing the family system with a multi-disciplinary approach. These frameworks should inform your therapeutic technique, strategy, and conceptualization as you complete your diagnostic interview, develop and update treatment plans, and engage with your clients.
