Holyoake’s purpose is to help bring lasting change to lives affected by alcohol, drugs and related issues. This means going beyond counselling programs to providing continuing care through Holyoake Connect which offers supportive links to:
- Consumers – peer support and inspiration
- Holyoake and other service providers – access to professional support when needed
- Community – opportunities for increased participation and sense of belonging
Membership to Holyoake Connect is available at no cost to current and former Holyoake clients. The benefits include:
Holyoake Connect offers free workshops and activities to provide useful information and advice about personal development, health and wellbeing. It is also an opportunity to meet people and share experiences.
A Chorus Line
Research proves that music can contribute to positive mental and social wellbeing. This is why Holyoake Connect offers a choir program which provides an opportunity to enjoy the benefits of singing in a group environment.
SMART (Self-Management and Recovery Training) Recovery is a group program that helps participants to maintain their personal goals around substance use and enhances their motivation to recover.
Holyoake Connect helps the recovery process through encouraging and supportive follow-up phone calls to our consumers.
