If you answered yes, we want to hear from you! We have the opportunity for two Forensic alcohol and other drug (AOD) assessors to join us in our RAPIDS team in the state of Victoria, based in our Richmond office. We’d love to hear from people who are motivated by working with a team of skilled and knowledgeable staff, innovative in finding solutions, and passionate about the right to a second chance.
The Australian Community Support Organisation (ACSO) is a dynamic, values driven NFP, focused on partnering with government and the community to co-design services that create real social change. We’re an organisation with a bold vision to create a safe and inclusive community freed of crime and prisons. It’s our goal to reduce re-offending, and our mission is to help people transition from prison, assist them in the community, stop them from re-offending, and intervene to divert others from committing crime.
The Responsive Assessment, Planning, Intervention & Diversion Service (RAPIDS) was first established in 2012 with the aim of providing forensic alcohol and other drugs assessment and bridging support service to high risk forensic clients. RAPIDS forensic AOD assessors are responsible for providing expedited assessment, writing high-quality clinical forensic reports and developing treatment plans for Justice clients across Victoria. RAPIDS provides an assertive outreach service, which aims to engage with clients who are at significant risk of harm due to substance misuse and dependence. The service is available statewide and utilises Videolink technology where required to engage with regional or rural areas.
