Director of Addictions and Mental Health - Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services - Closed < Back
Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services opened in 1976 with a mandate to support the Ottawa community affected by substance use issues. Early on, Rideauwood proved to be a pioneer in its field and began offering their services by recognizing that support was essential not only to people consuming substances but also their families and significant others. Today, Rideauwood’s mandate has broadened to include, gambling, other compulsive behaviours and mental health issues. A sought-after community partner, Rideauwood is committed to the development of solutions that improve access, increase supports and provide clients with treatment programs and support that meet their unique needs including abstinence, moderation and harm reduction options. It is that compassionate, adaptive, expert and collaborative approach that has earned Rideauwood a trusted place in the Ottawa community and the surrounding region as a leader in the addiction and mental health care field.

This outstanding community resource is now seeking a compassionate, experienced Director of Addictions and Mental Health to lead the organization’s clinical operations forward, and to work with the entire Rideauwood team, key partners and a growing range of stakeholders to shape the future of addiction and mental health care in our community.
