Why get involved?
The period following withdrawal is a vulnerable time in which the potential for relapse is significant. The program provides intensive post withdrawal support. The aim is to help people develop coping skills and maintain the motivation to change their drinking behaviour at a time when it is very challenging to stay on track. The program does not exclude people who use other drugs. We do not impose sanctions on people who lapse; however, people cannot attend the program if substance intoxicated. Prescribed medication and pharmocotherapies for any drug are recognised as acceptable treatment interventions.
