Family Support Services
Our Family Support Services help vulnerable families and children at risk in the community, as well as helping family members reconcile, reunite and reconnect with a loved one while in our residential care.
I have a family member with a drug/alcohol addiction
Our Family Support Program helps vulnerable families and children at risk in the community as a result of a family member who is dealing with drug/alcohol addictions.
Our Family Support Worker can arrange visits and information sessions to share information and advice about addiction, alcohol and drugs, details about our centres (New Life Centre & New Hope House), and to assist young people who wish to engage in rehabilitation.
I have a family member in the
Teen Challenge QLD program
Our Family Support Worker helps parents, siblings, extended family members and close friends understand and cope with the results of substance abuse in the lives of the family member or friend recovering from their addiction. The process of addiction is a traumatic experience for all involved, and often causes family issues and breakdown of relationships.
Our support includes arranging visits with parents and families, phone calls, information meetings and, if required, referrals or recommendations to other services in the region where they live.
