Mental Health Nurses 

Mental health nurses play a vital role in providing specialised care and support to individuals dealing with alcohol and substance use disorders. They possess expertise in both mental health, AUD and SUD treatment, allowing them to address the complex needs of individuals in recovery.

They work collaboratively with interdisciplinary teams, including psychiatrists, psychologists, and counsellors, to ensure holistic care and optimal outcomes. Their roles may include performing assessments to evaluate the severity of a disorder, identifying co-occurring mental health issues, and developing personalised treatment plans. They assist with detoxification processes, administer medications to manage withdrawal symptoms, and monitor clients’ progress.

Additionally, they teach coping mechanisms and support relapse prevention strategies. They offer ongoing support, monitor clients’ well-being, and promote long-term recovery and wellness.

The role of our mental health nurses combines medical expertise with empathy and understanding, creating a supportive environment for you and your family as you navigate the challenges of mental and behavioural disorders and work towards a healthier, happier life.

Recovery Coaches 

Recovery coaches play a vital role in supporting individuals on their sobriety journey, providing guidance, encouragement, and accountability to help individuals maintain abstinence and make positive life changes.

They are not therapists or counsellors; they work alongside our medical team, offering a non-judgemental and empathetic approach to support you in your recovery efforts. Their role is to empower you, foster self-discovery, and help navigate the challenges and obstacles that arise during the recovery process.

Recovery coaches act as mentors, offering support and practical assistance in various areas of life, such as setting and achieving goals, developing healthy coping strategies, improving relationships, and accessing community resources. They often draw from their own personal experiences, providing a unique perspective and understanding.

Live-in Companions

A live-in companion provides 24/7 support and accountability within the home environment, and many of our clients benefit from having this level of support.

Having a live-in companion can be a great source of support for individuals suffering from mental health conditions too. 

They ensure the safety and well-being of our clients, provide a sense of security and social interaction and are a reliable presence for assistance and companionship.

They can help to create a structured and substance-free living environment, assist with daily routines, monitor triggers, promote healthy habits, and offer emotional support, encouragement, and companionship during challenging times.

Additionally, they can accompany you to support group meetings, therapy sessions, or other recovery-related activities. The presence of a live-in companion can be supportive and motivating as you navigate the early stages of recovery, making it easier to maintain sobriety and establish a stable foundation for long-term abstinence.

Medical Doctors 

We believe medicine is an important part of the treatment process, and our medical doctors play a key role in the initial assessment, diagnosis, and medical management of individuals with mental health and substance use disorders.   

During your initial assessment, our doctors provide a thorough evaluation of your physical and mental health, including identifying any underlying medical conditions or co-occurring disorders. They can also prescribe and manage medications for withdrawal management, craving reduction, and addressing comorbid conditions.

Through our team of associates, you can expect to receive extensive testing to help get to the root cause of your condition. We believe in treating the whole body, and our team works closely with our medical doctors to develop integrated treatment plans, monitor progress, and adjust medications as required. Their expertise and knowledge contribute to the overall well-being of our clients, ensuring a holistic approach that addresses both physical and mental health aspects of recovery.

Advanced Health Assessment 

As part of your treatment plan, you will receive an advanced health assessment in order to gain a better understanding of your condition and any underlying issues that may be contributing to the presenting problem.

Some of the testing you can expect to undergo will include: 

  • Nutritional 
  • Neuro-endocrine 
  • Digestive 
  • Immune 
  • Biomolecular 
  • MRI brain scan
  • Ultrasound

You will also receive various blood tests and essential functional and biological screenings and assessments.

We believe in taking a holistic approach to treatment to get to the root cause of the problem – every individual is different, and our genes, environment and lifestyle choices can have a direct impact on our body’s ability to function well.

With proper testing, diagnosis and treatment, any dysfunctions found can be reversed and restored, helping you on your road to recovery. 

Your advanced health assessment may be carried out within one of our specially selected treatment facilities or in your home, and this will be discussed with you as part of your initial assessment. Our team is always on hand to listen to you and your needs, and we make it our aim to place you in the care of the very best practitioners, always with your overall well-being in mind.
