Kōrero mō te tūranga About the role
We are looking for a Registered Nurse, Registered Social Worker, or Registered Occupational Therapist to join our Opioid Treatment Service (OTS). The role of the OTS is to provide substitution medications alongside support for social and mental health needs.
We are a community-based team that works with people who experience opioid dependence and the hazards and harms associated with this. The team conducts comprehensive assessments of opioid use, other addiction issues, mental health difficulties, physical health difficulties, social needs, and cultural needs.

Once people are taking substitution medication our Case Managers meet with them regularly to check the safety of the medications and ensure that other addiction, mental health, physical health, social, and cultural needs are being met.
