PIER is an Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Team. This community-based, multidisciplinary team provides top-of-the-line care to participants living in our community who need intensive, continuous support as they manage their mental health and substance use concerns. As you assist participants in navigating their well-being journeys, you will work alongside the program's Psychiatrist/APRN, Licensed Therapists, Psychiatric Nurses, Peer Support Specialists, and other professionals. Your role as a Voc Rehab Specialist is absolutely vital in the success of the program participants' recovery journeys. You will assist in developing treatment plans in coordination with other team members, providing support, referrals and access to resources, transportation to appointments, assistance in vocational skills, applications for financial assistance, and more. Throughout the treatment episode, you will be working directly with the participant and the team to adapt their treatment plan to reflect their unique, changing needs, strengths, issues, and preferences. This position is community-based, meaning most work time is spent outside of the office, meeting with participants. While most hours are Monday through Friday with daytime hours, this position must be available for rotating on-call and an occasional "late day" (10am to 7pm), also on a rotating schedule.

CenterPointe has stayed at the leading edge in our industry, receiving the SAMHSA Service & Science Award, various local acknowledgments and awards, and consistent CARF-International Accreditation since 1996. As we continue to push boundaries and provide the best services, we are growing as an agency and continue to look for innovative, person-centered opportunities to help the members of our communities.
