“I know I have a problem but there’s no way I have time to go to rehab.”
The Outpatient Program is an 11-day program specifically designed for people with substance abuse issues who are unable to take time out from their family or work commitments.
Our program is a quality, responsive and personalised day program which will help you identify personal recovery goals and assist in making the changes necessary to reach them.
We don’t believe that one size fits all and we don’t repackage the 12 steps. We have our own evidence-based programs. Come in for an assessment and we will tailor a program for you. Our in-person program operates in Armadale and we offer an online option to participate for those unable to be on site.
