Job/Position Opening

Job/Position Details

Company:

A Positive Alternative

 

Location:

4649 SUNNYSIDE AVE N SEATTLE, WA 98103

 

Position/Job Description:

A Positive Alternative is a long established outpatient treatment program for Chemical Dependency, located in Seattle, Washington. (Please visit our web site for more in-depth information regarding our treatment philosophy at www.apositivealternative.com). We are currently seeking a Master’s Level clinician with experience in the mental health field and an interest in Chemical Dependency. The strong candidate would have training and experience or an abiding interest in Chemical Dependency treatment. A CDP Certificate would be ideal but not necessary. We’d like to find someone who would enjoy working in a small organization with professionals who are open to new ideas, supportive and collaborative with each other and also able to operate independently. We offer our clients gender specific groups that are not based on a 12-Step model of treatment, but provide a client-centered experience using Motivational Enhancement, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and emotion regulation skills and strategies. Our clients learn the importance of self-care and self-respect as the foundation of their recovery from their problematic behavior with substances. Because we have a unique approach to treatment, we find new staff benefit greatly from an extended training with our clinicians. This can last 1-3 months. Following training, it is possible a person (depending on credentialing) can begin working with clients individually and in groups. This can consist of 10-12 hours a week to start and as much as 15-25 hours following training and orientation time. Our clinicians are independent contractors and are paid an hourly wage (commensurate with experience). Most groups are held in the evening for 2-3 hours. If you have an interest in this opening, please send your resume and cover letter, explaining a bit about yourself to Andrea St. Clair at: amsc13@comcast.net
