We provide one-to-one support and counselling for up to 12 sessions. During these sessions, we will work with you to identify the underlying issues that might play a role in your alcohol and drug use and help you develop life skills to make long-term changes.

One-to-one sessions are also available to reinforce learnings from group work programmes, and to develop individual relapse prevention plans.
