One to one Support / Substance Abuse Counselling

Psychotherapy Session

St. Dominic’s Community Response Project has an open-door policy, working with the most vulnerable people involved in problematic substance use. We have no criteria regarding types or amounts of drug or alcohol use when referring for support.

Our service prides itself in having a tailored approach when treating problematic substance use. We do not label or provide service users with further justifications by terminology such as addiction, addicts etc. Instead, we focus on the relationship you have developed with your substance /substances of choice and aim to educate you with the tools and skills to be able to manage ending this relationship. We believe each service user is unique and therefore your treatment plan will be designed to meet your needs.

  • Tier 3: One to One recovery awareness support to achieve a substance free lifestyle withing the community
