What happens in the program?

The program includes many treatment phases, including weekly phone contact, weekly face to face meetings and structured groups.  Our residential & day programs offer the following:

  • Two educational groups operate each morning, covering subjects including relapse prevention, relationships, boundary setting, stress and wellbeing.
  • Therapeutic activities such as nutrition in recovery, gardening, cooking, art, drumming, gym, supported shopping, and recreation activities are run each afternoon.
  • Day Program clients have lunch at the centre and leave each day at 4.00 pm.
  • Residents prepare their own breakfasts, and cook evening meals on a rostered basis. They also participate in work therapy, cleaning and tidying the centre and grounds. Residents’ days are structured with an early morning ‘tune in’ meeting before breakfast and bedtime, and lights out is at 11.00 pm.
