Position title
Mental Health and Addictions Counsellor – Ref. No. 21031 Rapid Access Addiction Medicine Full-Time | Term
Description

We recently opened a Rapid Access Addiction Medicine (RAAM) clinic that operates out of our Community Health Centre. This clinic model intends to fill a void in the addiction treatment system by providing immediate access to evidence-based addiction care. Services are low-barrier, accessible and patient centered. The strength of this model is the walk-in nature that meets patient needs the same day. This ‘window of opportunity’ is often missed in the addiction treatment system with long waits for appointments and difficult intake procedures. RAAM services include assessment, treatment planning, case management, psycho-social interventions, and pharmacotherapy.

The Mental Health and Addiction Counsellor works with clients with addiction as well as with mental, physical, and social complexities. This role reports to the Team Lead and works collaboratively within our Primary Healthcare Team. This is a new role, which will evolve based on identified needs of the program. This is a full time, 12-month contract.
