Clinical Case Manager
As a member of a Integrated Dual-Diagnosis Treatment (IDDT) clinical case management team, the Clinical Case Manager plays a critical role in supporting a client’s progress as they move through the stages of recovery, and assists them to transition from the behavioral health care system. The Clinical Case Manager is responsible for establishing contact with newly referred clients and developing a collaborative relationship that will facilitate their participation in treatment. The Clinical Case Manager is responsible for maintaining consistent contact with clients, deepening the treatment relationship, assisting clients to identify life goals and linking them to community resources that can support their wellness and recovery. The Clinical Case Manager needs to have the skills, knowledge and ability to shape an effective working alliance, foster hope, build motivation, assess pressing needs, identify barriers to treatment, and link clients to resources to meet their basic needs. The Clinical Case Manager must demonstrate the knowledge and clinical expertise to assess and diagnose, teach clients the skills that will support recovery and enable them to successfully pursue their goals, and to provide clients with regular coaching to apply these skills in their daily lives. Successful candidates will be knowledgeable and experienced employing intervention strategies using motivational interviewing, harm reduction and abstinence-based models of treatment.
