Catholic Community Services’ Counseling, Recovery & Wellness (CReW) Program is a licensed community mental health and substance use disorder treatment program and provider of the King County Behavioral Health Organization (BHO). Our program focuses on serving adults with mental illness and/or substance use disorders to help improve individuals’ quality of life. Range of services includes diagnostic assessments, individual therapy, peer support, case management, group counseling, skills training, care coordination, medication management, and psychoeducation. CReW clinicians provide services in a variety of locations within Seattle downtown and greater King County, including within Permanent Supportive Housing programs, shelters, day centers. Services offered utilize Harm Reduction and Recovery principles, with an emphasis on building collaborative relationships with the persons served as the first step towards lasting engagement in treatment.
The Psychiatric Provider, either an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) or a Psychiatrist, provides direct psychiatric services to adults with mental illnesses, many of whom are homeless or formerly homeless and have co-occurring substance use disorders. The Provider works in collaboration with the CReW Program Assistant and Registered Nurse as well as counselors and case managers on the team to ensure quality medical care of individuals with complex needs. The Provider also participates in quality clinical consultation and support to staff on benefits and risks of psychotropic medication as prescribed to individuals with chronic conditions. Psychiatric services are primarily offered at CReW’s downtown Seattle location at the Josephinum Apartments, and other offices within South King County are available as work locations as well depending upon Provider availability and interest.
Hours Per Week: Variable depending on interest/availability; 4-12 hours/week.
