Case Worker - Victor Harbor

Drug ARM

Program Overview

The Community and Family Support Service (CAFSS program) provides a structured brief intervention package for individuals and their significant others in addressing alcohol and/or other drug use and associated issues. Volunteers and students support the caseworker to deliver the CAFSS program and are supervised by the Case Worker. The service is highly accessible because of multi-modal service delivery (face to face, online or telephone), and multi-platform service provision (office, home or community-based appointments).

The CAFSS program provides assessment, case management, case formulation, counselling, psycho-education, social skills training, relapse prevention and referral strategies to presenting clients with low to medium complex needs. These are delivered in accordance with Harm Minimisation and the Bio-psychosocial model and Recovery orientation as outlined in the Model of Service, using CAFSS approved interventions as outlined in the Interventions Manual & Toolkit.

This position requires fortnightly travel to deliver services on Kangaroo Island over a 3-day period.
