Programs & Services

At Drug ARM we take a holistic approach to recovery. We believe in treating all the factors that contribute to alcohol and drug use, not just the issue by itself. Our services are tailored to meet the needs of each person and are informed by current best practice.

We inform and educate communities on issues around alcohol and drugs and help them find innovative solutions to reduce harms. We work with our stakeholders to ensure that the community sector as a whole is equipped to respond effectively to alcohol and other drug related harms. Our staff provide a range of services and programs so that each person can get the support that they need.

Who do we help?

We have programs and services for all people who are affected by alcohol and other drugs. There are specific programs and services for people using or at risk of using alcohol and other drugs, their families and friends as well as local community groups.

Are you concerned about your relationship with alcohol or other drugs?

There is nothing shameful about having a concern with you alcohol or other drug use. You are certainly not alone and there is help available.
Thousands of people who have come to Drug ARM have been able to make positive steps towards their goals. For some, they just want to have a quick confidential chat with our team where others might want some help reaching their goals like getting a job, mending their relationships, cutting back on their use or completely stop using.
Whatever your relationship with alcohol or drugs and whatever your personal goals, we are here to help.
Our discreet team are able to help you build a better life in a supportive, non-judgemental and confidential environment. We have a range of different programs available and we can tailor how we work with you to suit your needs and goals.
