Family Support Groups

Our free Family Support Community Services are focused on parents as well as family and friends. For parents they aim to give parents the necessary skills and confidence to take care of their own children. For family and friends it is about showing them how to be there for a loved one who has an alcohol and other drug related addiction.

 

Bringing Up Great Kids!

A well-established community based program, ‘Bringing Up Great Kids!’ focuses on mindfulness, positivity and reflection to help parents enhance their communication with their children. In the program, participants are encouraged to reflect upon their past experiences with their parents and consider how these experiences might now be affecting their own parenting style.

Classes are highly interactive, with participants being given activities to perform each week. The program runs for 4 weeks every Tuesday, with one 2-hour class per week from 10am to 12pm. Classes in each program consist of 6-7 people, enabling each person to get a more specialised and intimate learning experience.
