Administrator - New Crisis Residential Treatment Center

Telecare Corporation - San Jose, CA3.6


Indeed Hire has partnered with Administrator - New Crisis Residential Treatment Center to locate a Telecare to join their team in San Jose, CA.

Founded in 1965, Telecare is a rapidly growing mental health care company dedicated to making a difference for our clients, the community, and our employees. We offer an array of mental health services to adults with serious mental illness. We partner with public sector entities and behavioral health organizations, and have over 90 programs and over 3,000 employees across the country. And we're growing all the time! When you work at Telecare, you help to empower thousands of individuals every day in their journeys of recovery.

As part of the Telecare Family, we are now hiring for our newest program, a 15-bed Crisis Residential Treatment (CRT) program in San Jose. This program will serve adults who are ready to leave jail but who are still experiencing an acute psychiatric episode or crisis and would otherwise require hospitalization. Our proposed program will provide a safe, home-like alternative to psychiatric hospitalization and incarceration, where individuals experiencing an acute psychiatric crisis can regain their stability and begin working toward longer-term recovery goals.

The Administrator will also be responsible for managing the adjacent program, Telecare's new SUDS program. This program serves adults in a unified approach to recovery from substance use and mental illness. In our 50-year history, Telecare has provided co-occurring capable mental health treatment in numerous licensed residential treatment environments as well as outpatient settings. The primary goal of substance use residential treatment in such a system is to stabilize the psychological, physical and social aspects of addiction while preparing the individual for successful treatment at lower ASAM Levels of Care.


The Administrator manages all aspects of the day to day operations of the Program. This involves ensuring regulatory compliance and actively overseeing quality assurance performance improvements. Additionally, the Administrator collaborates with all corporate departments and outside consultants and represents the Program to State/County agencies, community partners, and consumer groups.
