Job Info


Great opportunity exists as a Recovery Coach in our Certified Community Behavioral Health Center! The Recovery Coach will assist clients with a dual diagnosis of Serious Mental Illness and Substance Use Disorder in their recovery. This position will be responsible for helping to facilitate the National Outcome Measures reassessments in accordance with federal requirements and timelines as well as participate in team meetings to review client care and relay any concerns the clients may have expressed.

The Recovery Coach will report directly to the CCBHC Project Manager and will work closely with the Program Director, Client Navigators, and Clinicians to ensure clients are fully engaged in their treatment and feel supported throughout the process. There is a possibility of a dual reporting relationship for this role as we integrate CCBHC services across the organization.

Other responsibilities include:

  • Provide peer counseling and support, drawing on common experiences as a peer, to validate clients' experiences and to provide guidance and encouragement to clients to take responsibility and actively participate in their own recovery with a focus on substance use.
  • Provide expertise and consultation from a mental health/substance use consumer perspective to the entire team concerning clients' experiences on symptoms of mental illness, the effects and side-effects of medications, clients' responses to and opinions of treatment and client's experiences of recovery.
  • Collaborate with the team to promote a team culture in which each clients' point of view, experiences, and preferences are recognized, understood, and respected, and in which client self-determination and decision-making in treatment planning are maximized and supported.
  • Help clients identify, understand, and combat stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness and develop strategies to reduce self-stigma.
  • Collaborate with the team to ensure the protection of clients' rights to help clients improve their knowledge of client rights and grievance or complaint procedures.
  • Increase awareness of and support client participation in consumer self-help programs and consumer advocacy organizations that promote recovery.
