General Description Brief description of the job to be performed.
The ODI FAIR Families Actively Improving Relationships (FAIR) Clinic is seeking interventionists who will be part of a 6-8 member clinical team made up of QMHP/QMHA, and CADC level counselors in Lane County, Oregon. Applicant must be a QMHP with a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor certificate or be willing to obtain one within the first year of employment.
All FAIR Counselors provide intensive services following a program manual using evidence-based strategies to address parenting deficits, mental health problems, substance use, and ancillary needs (e.g., housing, employment). Services are provided at times and places that are convenient to clients (e.g., home, school, community). Many sessions involve family members (including children of different ages) and social supports (both prosocial and deviant).
Clients referred to the FAIR program often have co-occurring substance abuse, child neglect, and mental health concerns. Pre-FAIR is a prevention program that will serve clients at risk of escalating toward substance abuse. The majority of clients are involved with and referred by ODHS Self-Sufficiency and Child Welfare programs. Substances we are trying to prevent use of by our referred parents are methamphetamine and/or opiates. All applicants must feel comfortable with providing services to individuals with this presentation in home and community settings.
This position is classified as a healthcare position and per Oregon Temporary Administrative Order PH 38-2021, staff will be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination showing they are fully vaccinated upon hiring. Because this position requires in-person client contact, we are unable to accommodate vaccine exceptions for this position.
