The Withdrawal Management and Treatment Services (WMTS) portfolio provides support to people who use substances as they start or progress along their recovery journey.  This may be through our day treatment program, bed-based withdrawal management, bed-based addiction treatment, or continuing care programs.  We are looking for a Manager to join our leadership team, with primary responsibility for day and bed-based treatment programs that include 11 beds for those who identify as male and 10 for those who identify as female. Working collaboratively with a fellow Manager who focuses on withdrawal management, you will ensure effective client service while providing coaching and support to supervisor direct reports as well as the team of staff engaged in direct client care. Our ideal candidate has experience in bed-based, 24/7 addiction programs. Though your primary role is not direct client care, this is not a desk job. Our leadership team works alongside staff to provide care to people with complex concerns related to substance use, mental health, and broader social determinants of health. You make a difference!   

As the treatment program Manager, you will:

  • Collaborate effectively with fellow leaders to ensure efficient and effective functioning across the WMTS portfolio
  • Provide supervision, coaching, and performance management for staff
  • Engage in human resource process such as recruitment, interviewing, and initial orientation
  • Work with the program Clinical Lead to advance excellence in evidence-based treatment practices and ensure trauma-informed care
  • Develop program content, and engage in evaluation and continuous quality improvement activities
  • Oversee case management functions
  • Conduct audits to maintain accuracy and integrity of client files, identify data quality issues and contribute to Ministry reporting
  • Monitor adherence to agency and program policies
  • Ensure health and safety standards are met to support safe operation of the facility
  • Provide input and monitor adherence to program budget
  • Develop and maintain internal and external partnerships, ensuring effective care coordination
  • Collaborate across the Addictions and Mental Health leadership team to ensure broader departmental functioning

Hours of work:  37.5 hours per week, primarily Monday to Friday days with at least one evening a week, and some flexibility to meet the needs of the program.

Start date: As soon as possible.  Contract to late January 2025.


Salary: $64,565 annually plus benefits
