Certified Family Recovery Specialist - The PROGRAM for Offenders (Pittsburgh, PA)

THE PROGRAM for Offenders, Inc. a non-profit organization in Pittsburgh, PA, provides alternative housing, reentry services, and PA licensed drug and alcohol treatment at its residential facilities and in the community. THE PROGRAM has provided supportive services to give offenders a second chance at a crime and addiction-free life, and to give their children a first chance, since 1976. Because everyone deserves a chance, whether or not they are justice-involved, we provide our drug and alcohol treatment services to any eligible adult from the community referred to our facilities, including self-referrals.

We are looking for a full-time Certified Family Recovery Specialist (CFRS) to provide a range of non-clinical peer-to-peer supports to adults who have been directly impacted by a family member’s Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). This position is part of an exciting new pilot program that will provide peer support to eligible families across Allegheny County. It offers a competitive salary and benefits package, including health, dental, life insurance, paid time off, and retirement plan contributions.

Ideally, family members are an important source of practical and emotional support for each other. But OUD distorts family dynamics, erodes trust and weakens communication. Family members can be hard pressed to support their loved one’s recovery when they are also struggling to manage its impact on them. The CFRS helps family members understand and deal with their experience of their loved one’s recovery from OUD. The CFRS shares the unique perspective family members have on their loved one’s disease in a way that helps them develop coping skills and strategies—and supports the well-being of family members so they, in turn, can better support the long-term commitment and tenacity their loved one needs in order to recover from OUD.

Post date: 5/11/20
Deadline: 8/11/20
Qualifications:

Interested applicants who meet the requirements below will learn more about the responsibilities of this position during the interview process:

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS:
• Personal experience of the impact of a family member’s opioid use disorder and recovery; qualified family members who are also in recovery themselves are eligible to apply.
• Willingness and ability to share their personal experience to inspire and educate others
• Ability to develop a strong rapport with people from any socio-economic or cultural background, while maintaining appropriate boundaries
• Certified Family Recovery Specialist certification through the Pennsylvania Certification Board. Dually certified (CRS and CFRS) individuals are encouraged to apply, although this is not required
• Familiarity with manualized tools that help clients plan and focus, such as WRAP for Addictions
• Knowledge of local resources that may help to meet clients’ needs and support their quality of life
• Past experience providing peer support individually and/or in groups preferred
• Minimum of a high school diploma or equivalent
• Able and willing to work flexible hours, including evenings and weekends
• Must be able to obtain current ACT 33 & 34 Clearances.
• Must be able to obtain additional clearances as required.
• Valid driver’s license and full-time use of an insured vehicle, as local travel is required.
