North County Serenity House, a program of HealthRIGHT 360, was founded in 1966 to provide substance use disorder services in the community. North County Serenity House provides a gender-responsive and trauma-informed environment, using evidence-based and best practices that recognize and account for the role that trauma frequently plays in substance use and criminal histories of women. For clients with co-occurring mental illness, we provide integrated substance use and mental health services which treat both conditions as primary. Our residential facility serves up to 120 women (with capacity for up to 20 children under 5 years of age) seeking recovery from substance use disorders.
The Medical Director will be responsible for clinical oversight of the assigned program(s) as well as act as attending physician, providing direct participant care, assessment, essential medication and monitoring functions, and consultation to staff and clinicians. Successful candidate will have an understanding of the progressive approach to working simultaneously with both mental health and substance use disorders, have a working understanding of how trauma impacts lives, and must be able to work cooperatively with an interdisciplinary team.
