Staff needed as The Red Door reopens

Front Page

There's a welcome for everyone at the Red Door.

The Red Door Project is an organisation that the town/city of Drogheda can justly be proud of. The bulk of their work has been put on hold by Covid-19 but they’re anxious to get back to “business as usual” as soon as possible so they have advertised for staff.

The heavy red door it gets its name from has opened new chapters in so many people’s lives. Over the Red Door have carried out some amazing projects which have not only benefited the local community but given the participants new skills and new aims in life.

Red Door provides assistance to people dealing with addiction issues but, just as importantly perhaps, the friendly staff extend the welcoming hand to people who are at a very low ebb in their lives.

This week Louise Mahony, Joanne O’Dwyer and the rest of the Red Door team renewed their standing invitation to anyone that thinks a rehabilitation day programme where they could address their substance use or alcohol issues is for them.

“We offer a five day week recovery based biopsychosocial model programme, 9.30 to 1.30” Joanne O’Dwyer said.  

“Participants can attend counselling, key working, group therapy, lectures and workshops around addiction recovery, Pro social activities, woodwork programmes, health and wellness programmes, horticulture and many more, the list goes on. The onus is that the person works towards a better quality of life and recovery.” 

Positions Advertised

The Red Door currently have four support staff positions, one for an administration person and a house keeper post advertised on Jobs Ireland, if anyone is interested in a career in the social care setting this would be a solid foundation to start with or work experience that they need post qualification in social, health care or addiction recovery field.
