The Holyoake Menís Program offers clients a positive way of dealing with their use of alcohol, drugs or other dependent behaviours. The program consists of twelve sessions over a three to twelve week period (even longer if necessary), whichever is most suitable and beneficial to the client. The program aims, through lectures, group therapy, self-assessment and individual counselling, to create an awareness of alcohol/drug and other dependency issues in relation to the problems experienced by the client.  These problems include anger & domestic violence, relationship breakdown, low self esteem, stress, grief, and shame. There is a particular focus on the effects of problem substance use or other dependent behaviours on the family unit.

The program provides an instructive and supportive environment conducive to positive change, and encourages and assists clients to take responsibility for such change.  

The Holyoake Women\'s Program looks at the bigger picture of women\'s lives and offers support for women by:

  • Developing communication skills and self esteem.
The program is a combination of twelve group sessions and individual counselling, with both day and evening sessions available. Please contact us to book an initial interview to assess how best we can meet your needs.
