Our services include:
Counselling and Support
We assist people who may be experiencing problems with their own or someone else’s substance use. Individual counselling is available along with specially designed programs to assist individuals and their families to cope with the consequences of alcohol and other drug use.
Integrated Support Team
We offer a holistic approach to caring for individuals impacted by the harms of alcohol and other drugs. This includes medical assessments and support, pharmacotherapy, case management, counselling, mentoring, advocacy and group therapy programs.
Men’s and Women’s Groups
We offer confidential and non-judgemental men’s and women’s groups to support the journey of individuals experiencing issues arising from alcohol and drug use.
Court Diversion Programs
Specialised Court Diversion Officers attend court in Northam, Narrogin, Merredin and Moora. They support adults and youth who are eligible and who wish to participate in a pre-sentence alcohol and other drug support program.
SMART (Self-Management and Recovery Training) Recovery
This group program assists with any problematic behaviours. Guided by trained peers and professionals, participants come to help themselves and each other using a variety of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and motivational tools and techniques.
After Hours Counselling
Our counselling service is also available after hours for your convenience – evenings and weekends by appointment. In-person counselling is available in Northam and Narrogin, and counselling via phone and video is available throughout the Wheatbelt.
Call 08 9621 1055 or email email@example.com for more details.
After Care Coordinator
The After-care Coordinator provides a vital link between hospital and community-based services, via Country WA Primary Health Network.
Funded by WAPHA, this service is available for people experiencing suicidal thoughts without immediate intent and for people after a suicide attempt.
The service recognises continuity of care during the first few days after discharge from hospital following a suicide attempt. This is a known high-risk period for suicide and a period where people need support to link back in with their community and networks.
The After-care Coordinator helps manage risk, makes safety plans and supports people to connect with other services. The service also provides practical ways to reconnect people with their GP and other relevant community agencies.
Referrals for the After-care Coordinator come via the hospital, GP clinics, or from the Community Mental Health Service.
For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 08 9621 1055.
Holyoake operates two award-winning prevention programs in the Wheatbelt; one for the prevention of alcohol and other drug harm, and the other for suicide prevention. Both programs work closely together given the co-occurring relationship between alcohol/other drugs and mental health. The goals of these programs are to enhance mental health and wellbeing, reduce the incidence of mental illness, suicide attempts and suicide, and prevent or reduce problematic alcohol and drug use. Goals are achieved through the development, implementation and evaluation of community-based, evidence-based and evidence informed prevention plans.
This group offers a practical way to slow down and manage stress and anxiety. Participants will be guided through a number of mindfulness exercises to tune into moment-by-moment awareness of thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and the environment.
Referral to other Agencies
Our team may refer people to other specialised services within the region or outside the Wheatbelt for services such as specialised detoxification units and residential rehabilitation.
