A Clinician is needed for PACT Team in Gulfport, MS. This position will provide alcohol and drug therapy services to consumers on the PACT Team. Some on-call duties required. PACT is a program that serves individuals with severe and persistent mental illness in the community.

Programs for Assertive community treatment (PACT) is a team-based treatment model that provides multidisciplinary, flexible treatment and support to people with mental illness 24/7. PACT is based around the idea that people receive better care when their mental health care providers work together. PACT team members help the person address every aspect of their life, whether it be medication, therapy, social support, employment or housing.
