- We provide counselling and therapy to assist you with alcohol and other drug issues.
- We also provide this support to your family or carers

Types of interventions
Our psychosocial (non-medical) interventions for people with alcohol and drug issues include:
- case management
- coordination of care
- group work
- information and community education
- professional consultation to other service providers.
Early intervention involves:
- intervening when a person begins alcohol and drug use to prevent them developing serious drug use issues later on
- helping people who are engaging in patterns or contexts of drug use that have the potential to harm
Management of complex needs
- Many people using our services are presenting with increasingly complex and multiple needs.
- Some people also have difficult (and at times high risk) behaviours and coexisting mental health issues.
Relapse prevention is a collection of techniques that increase a person’s ability to:
- control cravings and urges
- enhance coping skills for handling high-risk situations where lapse or relapse is a possibility.
Combining these skills with lifestyle changes can help manage lapses and prevent relapses.
Outreach services are available to help you if you can’t easily or fairly access specialist alcohol, tobacco and other drug services. We provide:
- assistance with accessing other services
- access to skilled and professional help
- assistance to develop strategies to reduce harm
- access to specialist advice and information.
Services can be provided to individuals or in group settings.
