Staff Testimonial – James Knapp

Recovery Coordinator

Recovery Coordinator

I have been working in the role for 4 years now, qualified in social work in 2012 and moved into Drug and Alcohol services following my graduation.

 

My daily duty consists of managing a caseload of clients who access our integrated treatment Service for support around drug and/or alcohol treatment. The aim of our service is to shorten the Journey of addiction for clients and build stable foundations necessary to sustain change.  The majority of my day consist on meeting with clients on a 1:1 basis and working on problem solving and behaviour change by using psychosocial interventions such as Motivational Interviewing, CBT.

“I enjoy my role because I feel I am doing something that is worthwhile and makes a difference”

I coordinate detox plan access to substitute medications for clients which involves close liaison with our clinical team of specialist nurses and Doctors.

I enjoy my role because I feel I am doing something that is worthwhile and makes a difference, there is no better feeling seeing a client develop top their full potential. The work is hard but rewarding, team work is essential and as such we form strong bonds with our co-workers and clients alike.
