Do you enjoy working with clients with moderate to severe mental health symptoms, facilitating growth and supporting them to get all of their needs met as equal, valued and self-respecting individuals? Do you see clients as individuals, rather than being defined by their diagnoses? If so, you would fit in well with PathPoint's Behavioral Health Division, the award-winning and long-running agency that is also forward thinking and client-centered.

PathPoint is seeking a part-time Substance Use Outreach Specialist to provide services to individuals in various stages of recovery from substance use disorders living in the Santa Barbara area. This unique position is the result of an exciting new partnership with the Public Health Department in an effort to integrate behavioral health and health care services.

In this role, you will provide substance abuse screenings, brief interventions, referrals for treatment services, and case management to people in various stages of substance use recovery. Some of your clients will be individuals who are homeless, so some time will be spent working in the field. We are looking for someone with a collaborative spirit who is enthusiastic about working with other partners and health care providers to increase coordinated care. This is a part-time position for up to 13 hours per week and requires certification in alcohol and drug treatment.

Position Requirements:

  • Certification in alcohol and drug treatment is required
  • Strong computer skills and experience working with electronic medical records
  • Must pass Live Scan DOJ fingerprint background check, TB screening and basic health screening
  • Must have a valid driver's license with at least 5 years driving history, a satisfactory driving record, and use of a vehicle with current registration and insurance

Compensation and Benefits: $18 per hour. Benefits include paid sick time, 403(b) retirement savings plan, free Employee Assistance Program, wellness program with cash rewards, and housing assistance.
