This is a two week program which starts once your detoxification (if required) is complete. It is designed to assist you to stop substance misuse and includes:

  • Strategies to strengthen motivation to change
  • Relapse Prevention strategies to cope with cravings and triggers
  • Thinking skills and managing stress
  • Psychoeducation about substance use
  • Managing depression and anxiety

People who have completed the inpatient rehabilitation program are encouraged to attend the follow-up outpatient Alcohol and Drug Day Program specifically designed to provide support and prevent relapse

Day Program

New Farm Clinic’s Drug and Alcohol program is abstinence based. We support patients as they work towards the goal of living a drug and alcohol free life.

The Drug and Alcohol day program focuses on two stages of recovery.

  1. Stage one addresses coming to terms with living drug/alcohol free and includes relapse prevention techniques.
  2. Stage two focuses on the underlying issues relevant to the development of emotional wellbeing and ongoing abstinence.
