Addictive Behaviours Day Program
Who is this program for?
This program is designed for individuals who experience problems with misuse of alcohol, drugs, gambling or any problematic addictive behaviour.
How will it help me?
The Addictive Behaviours Day Program uses psycho-education, as well as mindfulness and acceptance skills to help clients with a range of difficulties including cravings and urges. A key emphasis within group sessions is upon Interpersonal Group Therapy. Interpersonal Group Therapy enables people to be open and transparent about the challenges of addiction as well as their own patterns of behaviour. The level of safety experienced in this format through a non-judgmental and affirming environment enables participants to explore their interpersonal relationship and the impact of their addiction and behaviour. The depth of discussion that results often leads to significant changes in thinking and behaviour that flows on to impact their wider world and recovery.
When does it run?
This program runs three days per week 9:20am-3pm and on one evening per week 5:30pm-8:45pm.
