Gippsland Lakes Complete Health (GLCH) is a leading health and support service provider in the East Gippsland region with over 500 staff delivering a range of services to help our clients to live well.

The AOD Youth Outreach/ Care and Recovery position encompasses two service types.

Youth Outreach aims to minimise the impact of AOD use in youth clients through comprehensive assessment, AOD treatment and case management services.  You will facilitate referrals, provide AOD education, provide evidence-based treatment and model appropriate behavior to support youth to make positive behavioral change.

An integral part of this work will be to develop relationships, liaise with and co-locate with education providers, treatment services and justice organisations who support youth. This may require the delivery of group education programs in these settings.

The function of the Care and Recovery position is to implement and support integrated treatment and care pathways for complex clients within alcohol and drug treatment services. The role facilitates a ‘wrap around’, coordinated, strengths based, person centered service model. The Care and Recovery Worker meaningfully engages the person and their family in goal setting, care coordination, and linking to other relevant health and human services to aid in the recovery and maximise opportunities for social and economic participation.

Qualifications Required

Minimum Diploma of Alcohol and other Drugs.  Candidates with counselling, youth work or social work qualifications who are willing to complete the minimum AOD skillset are encouraged to apply.

In return for your skills and experience, we can offer you a range of benefits including:

  • Competitive wages plus salary packaging.    Salary packaging means you pay less tax which increases your take home pay.
  • Options to purchase additional annual leave
  • Professional development opportunities
  • A large friendly and supportive team environment
  • Great location in the East Gippsland region, offering beautiful beaches, lakes and an enviable outdoors lifestyle
