What does that mean for our clients?

Our goal is to empower our clients with the tools and knowledge necessary to bring about a positive change so that they that they can overcome their substance dependency and fully engage in healthy, productive lives.

We are committed to assisting those with drug and alcohol misuse issues, as well as those with co-occuring mental health issues to:

  • realise a sense of self worth
  • nurture positive living skills
  • make permanent behavioural change
  • find a more productive way of living and help them take their place as valuable member of society

This is achieved by addressing the addictive behavior, as well as the underlying, core issues. By promoting activities that encourage accountability, honesty and integrity, healthy new habits are created.
