We encourage kindness and compassion. It is proven that a positive reinforcement approach is very effective for those who wish to change addictive behaviour. Self reliance leads to the ultimate goal of self empowerment and self governance.
We support the scientifically informed use of psychological treatment and legally prescribed psychiatric and addiction medication.
We support Mindfulness based meditation and relaxation techniques.
Our program is not based on religion or spirituality. We believe that participants spiritual convictions and religious beliefs are a personal matter. Spirituality may be helpful for some, but they are not a requirement of our program.
