Additional program description
Canberra AOD Services offers a community-based, structured day program at 1 Elder Street, Braddon. It is co-located with other Salvation Army community services including financial counselling, The Salvation Army Doorways emergency relief (financial and food assistance with support), recovery church and a drop-in centre. The program is for people over the age of 18 affected by substance misuse and other addictions and seeking a non-residential treatment setting.
Treatment is individualised for each participant through comprehensive assessment, referral, case management and therapeutic groups and aftercare support. Participants can engage in a particular stage and receive a certificate of completion for that stage dependent on their treatment needs.
The group program is harm reduction focused and based on The Salvation Army’s ‘Foundations Program’, which is a 12-week program aimed at helping participants better understand and manage substance use, find community, meaning and independence. The program is based on contemporary, internationally recognised methods, such as cognitive behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and motivational enhancement strategies. Groups run as a three-phased program (each four weeks) from 10am to 2.30pm, with additional one-to-one support and other social and wellbeing activities available.
