Guidance through every step
You will be guided through every step of the withdrawal process, with personalised support.
You will be supported by a skilled team that includes Alcohol and Drug Workers, Nurses, and Peer Support Workers.
The in-home withdrawal process is divided into four stages; intake and assessment, pre-care, withdraw and after-care.
Intake & assessment – Once we receive your referral, an appointment will be made with a GP who will complete medical tests. Our workers will complete a thorough assessment as well as an in-home risk assessment.
Pre-care – Depending on how prepared you are feeling about the withdrawal process, you may enter into a pre-care stage with access to counselling.
Withdrawal – During the withdrawal stage, you will be monitored for the first five days (Monday to Friday) by a Nurse and will have access to phone counselling and peer support in order to help you to withdrawal safely.
After-care – Following withdrawal, the program staff will support you with after-care. This stage focuses on relapse prevention and goal maintenance. You will be provided with counselling sessions, scheduled GP visits and continued access to peer support.
