About Drug ARM – Brisbane North

Drug ARM is a specialist not-for-profit, non-government organisation that supports people, families and communities to achieve positive transformation through awareness, rehabilitation and management.

The Brisbane North team offer alcohol and other drug treatment programs for people who want help to address issues related to their alcohol and other drug use; alcohol and other drug education programs for people in correctional centres or attending community corrections; and outreach services for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Programs

Creating Options

Creating Options is a twelve week treatment program for people who want help to address issues related to their alcohol or other drug use. Our team of specialists provide non-judgemental and confidential support through weekly counselling sessions and case management. We can help in areas such as relapse prevention, coping strategies, relationship skills, anger management, emotional regulation, mental health, and other life skills support. Creating Options can also help to coordinate care by engaging with existing healthcare and social services providers, or connecting to new providers. Our holistic approach means we help with all of the issues that might be contributing to, and maintaining, alcohol and other drug use. We work with each person to identify their goals, and provide practical solutions to make progress towards them.

Street Outreach Services

Our Street Outreach Services support people who are experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness to access services and achieve their goals. We provide non-judgemental and confidential support through referrals, information and a vital outreach of compassion. Our patrols visit parks, street sides and other accessible areas in the regions where we operate. Latest timetable available on https://vaks.mycommunitydiary.com.au/
