Job Description

General Summary

CCG is known for innovative programming in the realm of behavioral healthcare and addiction treatment. Our latest program is in the developmental stages and is in need of the right individual to help bring our exciting vision to fruition. We know addiction afflicts persons from all types of different backgrounds, and yet, the stigma still remains that addiction is an illness of the poor in inner cities. To dispel this, we are bringing individuals in recovery from a wider range of backgrounds together to share their similarities and differences of experience and perspective. Recovery occurs when an individual can reclaim their identity as a whole person who has something to give, and this program affords them that chance.
