Addiction Support

Families in Action provides psycho education, group therapy, support and referral for treatment to persons and/or their families who are dealing with a substance related issue, or have problems arising from substance abuse and/or are in recovery.

Our objectives are:

  • To explore who we really are in trying to get our lives together
  • To understand where we are in relation to your condition and where we want to be
  • To act in ways that extend ourselves beyond self imposed boundaries and those imposed by society

We offer:

  • Assessment
  • Individual therapy with addictions counselor and/or counselling psychologists/ social workers
  • Psycho-Education
  • Group therapy
  • 12 Step Programme (NA/AA)
  • Referral to an in-house treatment programme
  • Follow-up care

Our programme helps clients:

  • Regain control of their lives
  • Set short/long term goals
  • Learn problem solving skills that can be applied to everyday life
  • Strengthen and motivate changes in their ideas and attitudes towards self discovery
  • Identify triggers and weaknesses to substance abuse and develop alternative ways of coping
  • Support clients who are willing to make positive changes in their lives

In the group you are:

  • Allowed to share at your own “speed” although at times the facilitator may prompt responses in an effort to achieve a solution to the problem
  • Not forced to divulge any information that you do not wish to share

The support group meets every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Monday sessions are particularly interactive and therapeutic while Wednesday sessions are more psyco-educational. Friday sessions are reserved for the 12step Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous Meetings with the last Friday of every month reserved for Family Sessions.

Our support Group is a walk-in group. You do not need to be referred by an agency or professional. However persons must be assessed by our addictions counsellor before joining the group.
