Job Description

Recovery support specialists provide care for individuals recovering from substance abuse issues. These professionals perform a number of patient-related responsibilities such as conducting assessments, leading group sessions, helping develop life skills, and potentially facilitating interventions. Most of the recovery support specialist's work takes place in a facility equipped to handle substance abuse issues (such as a rehabilitation facility), though these specialists may perform outpatient- and intervention-related duties in alternative settings; in these cases, reliable transportation to reach alternate sites is necessary.
