Our staff are passionate about your recovery and offer substance misuse counselling which is a free and confidential service, available to anyone who has concerns about their own alcohol and/or drug misuse or the alcohol and/or drug misuse of a loved one. Counselling may include a focus on abstinence, harm reduction or relapse prevention. Some of this counselling is one-on-one which means it s just you and your counsellor. These sessions give you the opportunity to talk to each other in a private and safe environment. We also offer education programmes around drugs and alcohol for school, tertiary institutions and community groups.
