Program Manager, Peer and Family Addiction Recovery Support Program

Organization: 
The PROGRAM for Offenders
Location: 
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 Program Manager to implement, oversee and supervise the operation of an exciting pilot program that provides a range of non-clinical peer-to-peer supports to adults who have opioid use disorder and self-identify as being in recovery, and to their families. This position offers a competitive salary and benefits package, including health, dental, life insurance, paid time off, and retirement plan contributions.

It’s well known that peer recovery supports in the community can expand the reach of treatment programs and create a social network that meaningfully supports recovery. This new program takes peer recovery support a step further: it provides peer support to family members of adults with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) who are in recovery, helping family members to understand and manage their own experience in a way that also supports their loved one’s recovery. The Program Manager will be responsible for implementation of program services, including supervision of seven staff members; will coordinate with a referral network of drug and alcohol treatment providers across Allegheny County; will organize and direct the program’s outreach activities; will be the primary point of contact with the program’s funder; will oversee and manage data collection; and will be responsible for grant management and reporting.
