Job Description for Residential Program Director
A residential program director is responsible for the management of an in-house residential or treatment center. Management includes supervision of staff, handling of financial information, and oversight of residential programming. Program and policy changes are set forth by the program director, who also maintains the residential center’s public image through publications and outreach. Residential programs that seek out this type of director include drug treatment centers, long-term care facilities, youth and young adult centers, and homeless transitional centers. Scheduling counselors, scheduling round-the-clock support staff, and coordinating external contractors are all part of the director’s oversight. While they may delegate tasks, all day-to-day operations of a residential treatment center fall under the program director’s purview. Every day may bring new challenges, and the director must efficiently and calmly tackle them. Internally, there may be scheduling problems and patient-related emergencies; externally, vendor and contract agreements must be met and maintained.
