PHILOSOPHY

We believe that the person with the problem is the last to come to know how bad things are and the least likely to want any change. The people most wanting change are often family and community members.

Our approach is to take the focus from the person with the problem.

  • People have the right and should be encouraged to express themselves in their own language.
  • Everyone, no matter what culture, can experience personal and interpersonal problems through substance misuse.
  • Everyone has the capacity to change and realise greater potential in their lives.
  • The choice of change is not possible without an awareness of other opportunities.
  • The greater the crisis in anyone’s lifestyle, the greater the possibility for change, given the understanding of how to change.
  • Substance misuse is a major factor in the breakdown of family, and if the substance misuse is not worked on simultaneously with the other problems, then nothing constructive is achieved.
