Job Description

The Co-Occurring Psychiatric and Substance Use Disorder (COPSD) Care Coordinator will serve individuals with co-occurring serious emotional disturbances (SED) or serious mental illness (SMI) and substance use disorders, including Opioid Use Disorder.

The clinician will utilize the Bluebonnet Trails Community Services (BTCS) electronic health record and Clinical Management for Behavioral Health Services (CMBHS) to monitor key health indicators and other dashboard information, such as referrals, missed appointments, crisis episodes, assessments for treatment and more. The COPSD Care Coordinator will conduct National Outcome Measure (NOMS) Assessments, Adult Needs and Strength Assessments (ANSAs), Child and Adolescent Needs and Strength Assessments (CANS), and Person-Centered Recovery Plans (PCRPs) to determine risks and needs for individuals. Through assessments and monitoring care, this position will support step-down and graduation from services by linking to ongoing community support.
