Are you a skilled counsellor with experience working with AOD clients and a keen desire to work in the LGBTIQ+ community?
Thorne Harbour Health delivers Alcohol and Other Drug treatment and support services to the LGBTIQ+ community in South Australia, operating from The Cottage in Woodville.
We are looking for an appropriately qualified and experienced counsellor to join our small Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) team to provide evidence-based counselling interventions to community members experiencing problematic substance use.
As an AOD counsellor, you will work within a harm reduction and trauma-informed framework, using a range of approaches, including brief interventions, counselling, group work, and collaborative treatment planning. As part of a recently established program you will also help to embed the service within the broader SA service sector.
Knowledge of HIV, hep C and sexual health is desirable, as is an LGBTIQ+ affirmative stance and a genuine interest in meeting the health and well-being needs of our diverse community. Previous experience in AOD counselling and group work will be highly regarded.
We offer a supportive team environment, regular clinical supervision, ongoing professional development opportunities and the opportunity to further develop your skills in working from an LGBTIQ+ affirming and sex positive framework. We also offer generous salary packaging and a commitment to quality improvement.
For further information please contact Venetia Brissenden, AOD Program Coordinator (SA) on 03) 9865 6700.
