Upcoming Family Events -15th May 2016

The Family Education and Support Group (NB this is a rolling weekly group. There is no start or finish date.)

Register your interest to attend here

6.00 - 8.30pm Wednesday nights (NB there is also a full day option available - please specify when you enquire if this might be of interest to you)

The Family Education and Support Group is for people who want to know more about addictions and mental illness such as depression, anxiety and trauma-related conditions. At South Pacific Private we believe that the more informed you are the easier it is to make decisions that are likely to support your friend, family member, or even yourself, in dealing with these issues effectively.

The Family Education and Support Group meets for 2 hours on a Wednesday night and is facilitated by a Senior SPP therapist well experienced in supporting people to explore both the current problems and challenges you are likely to be experiencing, and also the underlying issues such as low self-esteem which may have fuelled the development of the addiction or depression.

The program runs for four weeks and is ongoing. We have deliberately chosen to make it very affordable for the four sessions as we want to make it easier for you to take that first step in dealing with such a painful and challenging issue that you have probably been managing on your own for a very long time.

Come along to the Family Education and Support Group to:

1.    Learn how to effectively help someone you care about who is struggling with addictions or mood disorders
2.    Find opportunity for support and discussion with other people struggling with the same problems
3.    Learn more about addictions and the underlying issues, co-dependency, and how family systems work.
4.    Learn more about the SPP approach to treatment for addictions and mood disorders
