Job Summary

Would you like to make a difference working with service users with problematic substance use?

The service

WDP Cheshire West and Chester is an established community substance misuse service. The service consists of both clinical and psychosocial and is CQC registered to provide a range of clinical interventions including BBV & health interventions, OST, and community detox. We actively promote recovery and work with individuals, those affected by someone else’s substance misuse, and the local community to improve the health, wellbeing and functioning of residents.

The role

Experience of working within substance misuse or a related Health and Social Care setting is essential. The successful candidate must be committed, resourceful and highly motivated to engage service users within treatment services and promote recovery through their daily practice. This role will require the post holder to assess the needs of service users, deliver effective interventions, complete detailed reports, and work closely with our clinical team and partner agencies.
