Drug, Alcohol & Gambling Counselling

Our Alcohol and other related programs can support you and your family in your recovery journey.

We understand that you can be dealing with a range of issues at one time and your program will be designed to help you work through them. We can support your recovery from drug, alcohol, mental health and gambling addiction whilst also helping you to rebuild your connections to family and community.

Our programs are based on the principle of Harm Reduction:

Harm Reduction is a way of dealing with alcohol and drug use - its main goal is to reduce their negative effects. Harm Reduction focuses on your well-being instead of trying to stop you using drugs and alcohol completely, which can be hard to do in the short term.
