  • Stress - how to recognise and then manage it
  • Communication - communication styles, listening skills, roadblocks to effective communication, fair fighting, dealing with negative emotions (guilt, disappointment, shame)
  • Creating balance in our lives and self care
  • Drug information night - what is on the streets and other information
  • Guest speakers - including staff from the Farm Therapeutic Community to discuss the program; Parent Drug Information Service (PDIS) speaker presenting on 'Drugs on the Street'.
The group provides a safe and confidential space and will assist you to gain skills and strategies to help your family in a constructive way.

Farm Information Sessions

The information session about the residential program is delivered weekly and lasting for about an hour. If you have a family member interested in the program, family members are encouraged to attend the information session with them. We also have family counselling available for families affected by drugs and alcohol.
