Focus Program

The Relationships in Focus program is designed for spouses, partners, parents, family members and friends of someone who is misusing alcohol, other drugs, gambling or engaging in behaviour that may be obsessive and destructive.

Holyoake aims to offer a supportive environment for you to talk about what is happening in your life. We will help you to gain skills and awareness about the nature of alcohol and drug misuse and how it impacts on you and all family members. We hope that with this new information you will feel empowered and clear about the changes you need to make to create the lifestyle you are looking for.

The program includes 4 individual counselling sessions and participation in 12 group sessions.

Topics include:

  • The Process of Dependency
  • Managing Stress
  • Communication
  • Anger Management
  • Self Responsibility
  • Family Dynamics
  • Creating Change
  • Self Esteem
  • Relationships

All Holyoake programs are based on a harm minimisation model.
