Southern District Health Board is looking for organisation(s) with proven ability to provide alcohol and other drug (AOD) services for people in the Otago area. The organisations will be existing healthcare providers with sufficient resources and infrastructure (including clinical leadership) to support this expansion of existing AOD services or development of new services. The organisation(s) will be cognisant with the current and emerging development of improved models of care including the establishment of localities in the Otago region. They will have established relationships with local Rūnanga, Iwi, and Maata Waka, and will be able to display evidence of Māori participation in their organisation at all levels including governance, leadership, and service delivery.
We need services for adults with moderate to severe issues relating to alcohol and drug use. The new services will have an expert workforce that are DAPAANZ registered and are able to complete brief and comprehensive assessments, undertake evidence informed interventions including motivational approaches, cultural support, individual and whanau support, and peer support. The interventions and support will be embedded in a Te Ao Maori framework where clinical and cultural perspectives are woven together with equal importance.
The service will work with people with complex needs including current or past involvement with Corrections, the workforce will be culturally competent and confident with providing services to Māori and Pasifika.
The specialist nature of this service requires strong clinical governance, oversight of practice, supervision, and continuous development of the workforce.
The successful provider will have established, trusted relationships with iwi, government agencies, community and social services and communities of interest.
They will be well networked with other AOD and health providers, work collaboratively with these providers, contribute to the overall leadership of the system through constructive leadership, and partner with others for the benefit of the Otago community.
