Lifeline Project is a national charity dedicated to improving the lives of individuals, families and communities affected by drugs and alcohol. We build real and sustained change through responsive local services.

An exciting opportunity has arisen within our Drug and Alcohol Integrated Psychosocial, Recovery Support and Care Coordination Service for a Psychosocial Interventions Worker. The role will consist of working within the Intervention and Recovery Support Team, one of the components that comprises Newcastle’s recovery-orientated treatment system for drug and alcohol users. You will deliver enhanced PSI interventions to those clients who have become ‘stuck’ and are not benefiting from the standard support options delivered through their care co-ordinator.

The role involves ensuring that the service’s PSI co-ordination services are integrated and delivered to a high standard. Delivering a combination of both workshop based and dedicated key-working support to clients identified as meeting the criteria for enhanced interventions.

You will co-ordinate and deliver a range of Psycho-social Interventions including MI, MET, ITEP, CBT based approaches and SBNT based approaches. You will take a lead role or specialism relating to an area of need within the client group, ie women, trauma, low motivation etc.

Working with external providers and co-ordinate access to external provision where needs cannot be met internally, including IAPT, sexual violence, domestic violence, and wider psychological support provision. You will deliver services that support service users to achieve recovery goals, positive outcomes, maximising engagement and retention through to planned discharge and community re-integration. The aim of the role is to proactively engage and support service users’ families and carers within service users’ recovery and treatment plans.

You will work effectively and flexibly with colleagues, the Team Leader and other managers, to ensure that high standards of performance are maintained. You will work within a strengths-based, recovery-orientated, change and outcomes focused approach which promotes service users and communities as responsible co-producers of health, well-being and recovery
