Adult Outpatient Therapist - Dual Diagnosis

Pitsburgh Mercy
Pittsburgh, PA


We are a community-based health and human services organization using person-centered care to treat our area’s most vulnerable populations. We work with families in settings that are safe and familiar to them, and view them as equal partners when planning, developing, and monitoring care.

Our mission is to be a compassionate, transforming presence within our communities. We reach out to offer help – and hope – to people who are experiencing:

Mental illness and substance abuse
Physical health needs
Intellectual disabilities
Traumatic events or circumstances, including homelessness + abuse


Our Outpatient Therapists for our Substance Use Disorder Team at our South 9th Street and East Commons locations provide individual and group psychotherapy to adults with mental health and addiction disorders. We are seeking an Adult Outpatient Dual Diagnosed Therapist to work in both locations. We’re looking for confident clinicians accustomed to evaluating, planning, and providing compassionate services, including outpatient, intensive outpatient, dual recovery, and partial hospitalization programs; plus all related documentation and case management work.



Are you a time management pro and a team player? While all of our therapists are expected to manage their caseloads and function independently, they’ll also collaborate with others in a team-based approach to care. If this sounds like you, please apply today!
