OUR METHOD

RECOVERY WORKS
‘THERAPEUTIC COMMUNITY’
TREATMENT MODEL

It is based on the belief that chronic addiction includes a destructive lifestyle that needs to be changed. Recovery from the lifestyle requires a holistic approach that challenges deeply ingrained behaviours and teaches healthy alternatives. Believing that change is most effective when it is experienced and shared, our residents assist each other in every aspect of their treatment.

Our professional staff function as facilitators, guides, and role models. Together the residents, staff and alumni make up a supportive community in which the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Our Method

12-Step Philosophy

We are an abstinence-based recovery facility with a foundation in the 12-Step program developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. While in treatment great care is taken to introduce and implement these steps into the lives of our residents. This is found through all aspects of care whether it be the clinical side or through experiential therapies.

The real efforts of recovery take place after the completion of treatment. With a foundation in the 12-steps, our residents have a ready made continuing care program by attending Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings, working with sponsors and being of service to others.

Our clients actively participate in AA and NA in Victoria and attend meetings daily, get sponsors, undertake service work as well as complete at least the first 5 of the 12 Steps while in treatment.
