Program goals

We will help you to live a healthier life, free of alcohol and drugs.

We offer you a safe space to work on your problems and difficulties, away from distractions of the community and we assist and support your transition back into the community.
The Cultural Enrichment Program focuses on building your strength and self-belief by connecting you back to your culture.
