Ahwatukee Health Care has a great opportunity for a licensed, experienced clinical social worker (LCSW) in a new, modern facility in an upscale, growth-oriented neighborhood. The program is a health and wellness practice with an emphasis on substance abuse treatment and we will offer ambulatory detoxification, medication assisted treatment, individual and group outpatient psychotherapy, along with a few other health and wellness services.

This company is a start-up and we are looking for a licensed professional (LCSW) to provide psychotherapy for individuals, families, and groups. As Ahwatukee Health Care is a start-up, we do not currently have patients as we are working on the licensing for the practice, but we will be running by summer. This project is fully funded and has a turn-key ready, 6,000+ sf facility. We have 8 exam rooms, 3 therapy offices, an X-Ray machine, office space, a large group room, and a beautiful large conference room.

The qualified professional will possess all the required state licensing and credentialing. The ideal candidate will be confident, caring, take initiative, ethical, and be in search of a long-term career commitment.

Our priority is accountability to our patients by providing the best, most cost effective medical care. If that is your priority too, and you would like to learn more about this exciting opportunity, please submit your CV to katiesarina@ahwatukeehealthcare.com if you are interested in this exciting opportunity.
