Our Family Education Group is for family / whānau / significant others of residents. It is a bi-weekly education group, on Tuesday nights at 7pm.

Topics include:

  • The Therapeutic Community and Higher Ground.
  • Families and Addiction – The ‘Domino Effect’.
  • Addiction as a Disease Concept – ‘The Roots of Addiction’.

Multiple Family Group also starts at 7pm on Wednesday and is for residents and family members. The resident and family members join this group on their fourth Wednesday in treatment. Family members complete three Wednesdays in Family Education Group and then move into Multiple Family Group. Each resident is encouraged to have two family members or support people at each Multiple Family Group.
