In addition, knowledge and experience of Medically Assisting Recovery and psychosocial interventions, engage collaboratively alongside colleagues – including peer mentors, volunteers, nurses and doctors, to ensure an integrated package of care. You will be committed to a positive, holistic and empowering approach to care co-ordination and will work with service users to initiate recovery from drug and alcohol dependence, to enable service users to build their own recovery capital and to support them to move into long-term sustained recovery and social (re)integration.
You will be committed to high-quality service provision and the active involvement of service users in all aspects of your work. You will have some training of relevance or be suitably qualified, and have experience when it comes to addressing substance misuse issues within a busy and dynamic integrated drug and alcohol service. It is expected that weekend and evening work will form part of your brief, as well as being able to work flexibly across all of the different service settings and to be able to travel across the whole of the East Lancashire footprint.
