Programs

Breakthrough for Families Qld: an ongoing series of free public information sessions for family members of people
who are using alcohol or other drugs. The sessions provide families with accurate information, equip them with the skills and knowledge to navigate the treatment system and address barriers to seeking help. It has two components:

  • Information Sessions: a two hour information session delivered in community spaces across each region
  • Individual Brief Support: families can access a series of one-hour brief support sessions as well as support from workers to connect to other local agencies. Duration of treatment is tailored to client’s presenting issues.

Creating Options Program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders: Intensive clinical support for people 18 years and over who require ongoing treatment to overcome, or manage harms associated with alcohol and other drugs. The program provides assessment, case management, case formulation, counselling, detox support, psycho-education, social skills training, relapse prevention, and referral strategies. Treatment episodes usually consist of 12 weekly one-hour sessions for individual.
