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 Care Coordinator Service
Holyoake works with the Wheatbelt Mental Health Services to assist people who have had suicide ideation, or have made a suicide attempt, to return to their communities. The After Care Coordinator achieves this through conducting wellbeing checks, developing safety plans, sourcing social and practical support, and by working alongside clients to set goals, reconnect with primary care services and reconnect with family and social support networks.
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.
