Program Details

This Intensive Community Rehabilitation Program is designed to assist individuals wanting to make positive lifestyle changes with regards to their drug and/or alcohol use.

Although a harm minimization approach is the informing philosophy - participants are required to remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol whilst in the program.  The model of service delivery is underpinned by the Community Integration Model (CIM), an approach to practice which increases ‘recovery capital’ for individuals and the program works with participants from a holistic perspective to facilitate change.

The program has a dedicated team of multi-disciplined professionals who provide professional and caring support.

  • Case Management:

    • Individual Treatment Plan designed to meet each participant’s needs.
  • Counselling:

    • Recovery-oriented counseling practice underpinned by strengths based approach to building resilience for clients and their families
  • An Intensive group program that includes:

    • Cognitive–behavioural/problem-solving groups
    • Psycho Education Group Work
    • Interpersonal Process groups
    • Skills development
  • Medication Awareness Component:
