Stay Connected is a flexible, effective, after-care program that provides long-term support for people who have completed intensive treatment in the Bridge Residential or Day Programs.
This inclusive, co-operative program is designed to help you gain independence and confidence, and to participate more fully in the community following your discharge from treatment.
The Stay Connected program includes:
There’s no obligation to participate in the Stay Connected program. However, research shows that people who use after-care support have a better chance of maintaining their goals and a lower risk of relapse.
You will be referred to Stay Connected during the fourth week of your intensive treatment, when our Community and Consumer Engagement Officer will meet with you and your case manager to start planning your after-care program.
If you choose to join the program, you’ll also be supported by peer mentors, who will help you to keep on track with your goals, and re-engage with your community.
The Stay Connected Program is available in Hobart, Launceston and Ulverstone.
In Hobart, weekly support groups are held each Tuesday afternoon, from 3.00 pm until 4.00 pm, at the Hobart Bridge Centre.
