Position Summary

At Interior Health, we’re all about giving people room to grow; room to impact; room to make a significant, personal contribution; and room to make a difference in the lives of others.

We are currently in search of a casual Alcohol and Drug Worker for the Landsdowne Centre in Kamloops, BC.

The Alcohol and Drug (A&D) Worker functions as a member of the larger Community Integrated Health Services (CIHS) health care team and as a member of a specific MHSU multi-disciplinary team. This position provides assessment, treatment, service coordination, and as required, urgent response to clients who may also have serious functional impairment in the domains of physical health and personal, family, financial, occupational, and social life. The A&D Worker functions as a primary clinician utilizing a variety of specialized treatment modalities/therapies for individuals, groups of clients and/or their families.

The ideal candidate will have strong assessment and treatment skills and possess a human caring and relationship-centered approach to practice.

Shifts may be offered Tuesday to Saturday (11:30 to 19:30 hours) with weekends and statutory holidays off.

There are many opportunities with Interior Health that begin with casual positions and lead to regular employment.

If you are motivated to be challenged professionally, this is the move for you. We offer excellent benefits and opportunities to maximize your skills. Interior Health is an organization where you have room to grow and where life outside of work is just as important to us as it is to you.
