About the role

Thorne Harbour Health, Victoria’s largest provider of LGBTI health services is now providing Alcohol and Other Drug treatment and support services to the LGBTI community in South Australia, operating from the offices of SHINE SA.

We will be providing a mix of counselling, case management and group work and are looking for an appropriately qualified alcohol and drug treatment professional to lead a small team. 

An initial focus of the role will be establishing the service within the SA service sector and forging referral pathways for potential clients. Clinically, you will have demonstrable skills and experience in delivering counselling, case work and brief interventions as well as strong supervision and risk management skills. 

Knowledge of HIV and Hep C is desirable, as is the capacity to work within a sex positive, LGBTI affirming, harm reduction and trauma informed framework. 

This position offers you an exciting opportunity to join Thorne Harbour Health’s leadership team and establish a new AOD service for the LGBTI community. While this role will provide local team leadership for the South Australian AOD service, you will work closely with both local THH/SAMESH management and be supported and managed by the broader Therapeutic Services and Capacity Building program at Thorne Harbour Health in Victoria.
