Self-management and recovery training (SMART) is a self-help group that can assist you to make the changes you want. SMART groups are facilitated by peers who have experience of both mental health and alcohol or other drug concerns.
SMART Recovery is based on four basic principles:
building and maintaining motivation
coping with urges and cravings
self managing of thoughts, feelings and behaviours
living a balanced lifestyle
SMART Recovery meetings:
focus on the present and future
focus on planning and setting goals for the next seven days
are about learning to plan your recovery by making the changes you want
No bookings are necessary, just come along.

Family support groups offer the opportunity to talk about what is happening for you with other people in a similar situation. Groups are run by peers (people who have experienced the alcohol and other drug use of someone close to them).
Please contact us the branch most convenient to you to see what family groups are available.
Assessment for the therapeutic residential program is available at our Perth or Bunbury offices. The assessment is tailored to meet individual needs to ensure maximum benefit from participating in the therapeutic community program. For this reason, the assessment process is slightly different for each individual and may vary in time to complete.
If you live in the metropolitan area and think you may be interested in residential rehab, please first attend an information session. No appointment is necessary, just come along. Feel free to bring a support person with you.
For all matters regarding residential rehabilitation, please contact our Perth or Bunbury offices.
The online pre-entry group is available for clients wishing to enter Beela Valley Therapeutic Community (TC), who have completed an assessment with the Bunbury Office.
The purpose of the group is to provide an opportunity for clients to discuss their individual circumstances, what is going on in their lives and their reasons for wanting to enter a TC. Participants in the group will also focus on setting goals during their time on the waitlist. The pre-entry group provides an opportunity for participants to become familiar with group process and sharing in a group setting in preparation for entering a TC.
