Back in Control – Drug education and relapse prevention program

January - April 2018

Getting off alcohol or other drugs is the relatively easy part of overcoming a problem with substance use. Staying off and regaining control over the drug (and over your life) can be much more difficult.

‘Back in Control’ is a six-session group education program for people who have or have had drug and/or alcohol concerns. The program is free of charge, confidential and open to anyone who wishes to work on their problem.

In support of the social and emotional wellbeing of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community, Tuesday morning sessions include a Yan-Coorara A&TSI co-facilitator.

‘Back in Control’ deals with the following topics:

  • Understanding drug use
  • Making a change
  • Staying on track
  • Changing ways of thinking
  • Dealing with difficult emotions
  • Problem solving and goal setting

Group sessions with AODS & A&TSI co-facilitators are held:

Tuesday mornings 10.00am – 12.00pm
At Level 4, Southport Health Precinct, 16-30 High St, Southport
