Work where every moment matters.
Every day, over 30,000 Hartford HealthCare colleagues come to work with one thing in common: Pride in what we do, knowing every moment matters here. We invite you to become part of Connecticut’s most comprehensive healthcare network.
Rushford Center, one of Connecticut’s leading providers of addiction and mental health services, is nationally recognized for delivering outstanding prevention, treatment and recovery programs. We offer a wide range of programs including Acute Care and Evaluation, Residential Addiction Treatment, Individual, Group & Family Therapy, Intensive Outpatient programs and Community Support Programs. Through the passion of our specialists, we continue to treat every patient with care, compassion and respect, while providing affordable and accessible services.
In order to provide support to patients based on personal experience, a Recovery Support Specialist performs many different tasks. The Recovery Support Specialist first and foremost uses their personal experiences in recovery to develop meaningful and trusting relationships with patients, acting as a mentor. As someone who successfully managed their own recovery, the Recovery Support Specialist provides patients an example of what they can strive for in their recovery.
The Recovery Support Specialist works to build a community of both clients and staff that is supportive and conducive to patient growth and recovery. They assist in the creation and implementation of social activities and utilization of technology recovery applications to help create a positive environment for everyone.
Recovery Support Specialists link up with various community organizations and resources to provide additional support for patients, particularly as they transition from recovery back into the general community. This can include continued peer recovery support (i.e. AA/NA), healthcare, housing, job assistance, and additional treatment services as well as support in the task of finding or re-integrating with friends, family, and outside communities.
Recovery Support Specialists work within the communities of the clients they serve and have assigned territories among Rushford locations. RSS split their time between on-site treatment location(s) and within the community, assisting clients in developing their sober network and resources within the community.
