The Community Health Center is a non-profit social service agency in the Akron area providing comprehensive treatment, primary health care, prevention and housing services for addictive and compulsive behaviors and disorders.
We are currently looking for a motivated, conscientious and dedicated Adolescent Assessment Counselor to perform the intake process for our Adolescent department. The Adolescent Assessment Counselor will go into the community, including homes and schools, to conduct intake interviews and assessments; will determine the level of care needed and initiate the treatment process at the Community Health Center by assigning a counselor and scheduling initial appointments; and will also provide case management and/or counseling services needed at time of intake to ensure appropriate care has immediately begun. Although a majority of time will be spent in the community, the Counselor will have their own private office at the Community Health Center, as well as excellent team support and supervision.
