Alcohol and Other Drug Counselling

Our Alcohol and Drug Counselling program has a recovery-oriented, client-centred approach, offering support to reduce or cease substance use through harm minimisation strategies, relapse prevention and early intervention.

Depending on the age group, one-on-one and/or group counselling is available to help:

  • Increasing understanding of substance dependency.
  • Increasing awareness regarding drug-related harms.
  • Improving the quality of life and self-efficacy.
  • Reducing or ceasing substance abuse according to the client’s personal goals.

Additional support options such as non-residential withdrawal support, art therapy, care and recovery coordination and overdose prevention may be available depending on the case.
