Family program Family counselling provides much needed support to families who are dealing with the drug and alcohol use of others close to them. The program also helps the family play an important role in the recovery process.
Palmerston’s counsellors are skilled in helping families draw on their own wisdom to bring about positive changes in their lives. Continuing care program Palmerston’s continuing care program offers support after the conclusion of a residential program or counselling service. Often people just want support to check in or connect with others. In recognition of this Palmerston offers: • SMART Recovery groups • social groups • telephone based wellness checks • referrals to other self-help groups
These services are supported by peer workers who have a personal experience of AOD and mental health concerns.
