position summary:

CODA has been building stronger families, safer neighborhoods, and healthier communities since 1969 through comprehensive behavioral treatment options for people in need of substance-abuse or mental health services.

The CODA Team is dedicated to providing quality care for our clients, who often come to us when alcohol or drug-related problems have brought about crisis in their lives. They may be physically and emotionally ill; their relationships, financial situation and work lives may be dysfunctional. They may be in trouble with the law, without homes, or lacking other things basic to making their way in the world. At CODA we assist women, men and families as they take on these challenges. We provide the support and treatment needed for them to reduce and eliminate their alcohol and drug use; reconcile with family and friends; find employment, and take a place in the larger community. In 2005, CODA expanded its mission to include treatment services for those struggling with severe and persistent mental illness. These new programs offer critical dual treatment services for the members of our community facing the especially challenging combination of mental illness coexisting with addiction.

We are currently looking for a Dual Diagnosis Counselor to join our second chance re-entry team in Hillsboro, Oregon. In this position, you would fulfill the following essential functions:

• Provide direct clinical services to clients using a strength-based and motivational approach, including diagnostic assessment and treatment plans, case management, development and revising of client-centered treatment plans, monitoring client progress, and providing stage appropriate interventions. • Ensure timely and accurate clinical documentation including progress summaries and session notes in compliance with agency and regulatory standards. Maintain the integrity of the electronic medical records system within individual scope of practice. • Provide resource information and referral to clients. Provide coordination of care with community partners and adjunct service providers. May coordinate services such as insurance re-authorization or attend community meetings as directed. • Adhere to regulatory requirements and maintain professional, ethical and behavioral standards of conduct, especially during critical periods.

The right individual for this position has a passion for helping others, is nonjudgmental, and is able to deal with difficult situations in positive and constructive ways. In order to provide a workplace safe for both employees and clients, CODA performs a criminal background investigation, drug test, education and licensing verification, driving record inquiry, and employment reference checks as a condition of employment. All CODA facilities are drug-free and smoke-free worksites. Employees may not be serving any supervised parole or probation. Individuals in recovery must have a minimum of two years in recovery post-treatment to be considered for employment.

This position is eligible for a generous benefits program including medical, dental, vision, 401(k), paid time off, life, disability, and extensive professional development and training. Employees also receive priority consideration for career advancement opportunities. Compensation for this position depends on qualifications.
