Senior Recovery Worker
EDP Drug & Alcohol Services (EDP) are passionate about supporting individuals to reduce their substance use and live happier, healthier lives.
We support people with multiple disadvantages, including substance misuse & mental health, as well as those who find themselves in the criminal justice system. Our services enable the people we support to improve their health, wellbeing and employability.
We currently have two brand new and exciting opportunities to join our Dorset substance misuse service, REACH, in our Safeguarding Families Together team
This is a great opportunity for someone looking to make a real difference, as you will not only be providing valuable support to adults with substance misuse related problems, but also providing support and improving outcomes for their families and loved ones.
As a Senior Recovery Worker with our Safeguarding Families Together team, you will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to support parents and carers to keep their children safely at home by supporting them with their recovery.
You will be responsible for a caseload of clients and their families, the clients that you work with can be anyone at any stage of their recovery with a spectrum of needs and related risks.
As this is a co located role working within Dorset Council children’s services, it would be a good opportunity for a newly qualified social worker to gain valuable experience within both statutory and third sector services, and there is a possibility that ASYE could be accommodated.
This position will be based from either Dorchester or Weymouth, but will support service users across Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester and West Dorset.
