General Support Services & Counselling
A team of professional counsellors and a registered nurse can help guide you through the withdrawal process with holistic care, with facilities purposely designed to provide a safe, welcoming environment for supported day recovery. Running from 8:30am – 4:30pm at our office in Sheridan St, Cairns, we can also provide you with extra support outside of these hours as well as before and after finishing the program.
Through the program we provide:
- individual assessment and care plan
- counselling sessions and exercise therapy
- GP appointments for health checks
- phone support over the weekend
After completing the 5-day Withdrawal Support Program, you have the option to enter our live-in recovery facility, Shanty Creek (in Mareeba),
Our Cairns team also provides the Breakthrough for Families program, with individual support as well as community drug and alcohol education evenings.
Breakthrough For Families
Breakthrough For Families supports families of people with problematic substance use (with specialised support for methamphetamines/ice) to be empowered to make positive changes through information, education and support.
