Meridian Behavioral Health is seeking a temporary full-time Interventionist to work in a structured Day Treatment program in Haywood County working with middle school youth. The treatment milieu of the Day Treatment program provides mental health and/or substance abuse interventions, which are developmentally appropriate, culturally relevant and sensitive, child and family centered and focus on reintegrating the individual back into the mainstream school setting. Interventions are designed to reduce symptoms, improve behavioral functioning, increase the individual’s ability to cope with and relate to others, promote recovery, and enhance the child’s capacity to function in an educational setting, or to be maintained in community based services. The Interventionist builds on strengths and addresses the identified problems associated with the complex conditions of each individual, while providing individual and group interventions. Preference will be given to applicants with prior experience. This is a temporary full-time position which may ultimately result in either reduced hours or regular employment status which will be dependent upon program needs.
To qualify for this position, applicants must have:
- a High School Diploma,
- a valid driver’s license with no restrictions, and
- reliable transportation.
