About the role

This role transverses across the Clinical & Nursing Services and Family Youth & Children’s Service Units, with direct connection to the Drug and Alcohol Team and non-residential withdrawal services. The team focus on supporting people to safely withdraw from alcohol and/or other drug use through a cessation or gradual reduction regime. Services are coordinated with medical services such as hospitals and general practitioners and seek to:

  • cease or reduce alcohol and other drug use to a level that restores a person’s health and wellbeing in the short term
  • provide a firm foundation for a person’s longer-term improved health and wellbeing
  • form part of an integrated and coordinated care pathway through linkage with the care and recovery coordination service for clients assessed as complex.

If you're a registered nurse looking to upskill and move into the AOD space, we will support your education and training requirements.


This position is clinically focused working in close collaboration with GLCH Care & Recovery workers and GPs to provide a team approach towards meeting the client’s health and wellbeing needs, incorporating alcohol and other drugs treatment principles.

As well as undertaking clinical withdrawal assessments, the role will be responsible for conducting comprehensive clinical assessments and identifying and facilitating clients’ care needs from a clinical perspective. The role will also incorporate health education and promotion of harm minimisation strategies.


  • Annual pay increases
  • Opportunity for ongoing training and scholarships
  • Option to purchase additional 4 weeks annual leave per year
  • Paid overtime when required
  • Flexible work arrangements, including working from home where available
