InFocus Education Program—for families and friends affected by someone’s drug and alcohol use.

Are you going round and round in circles, overwhelmed by the challenges in your life?

InFocus is a comprehensive education program that offers practical information, coping strategies, life skills and the opportunity for people to connect through their shared experiences.

The program is facilitated by professionals who have also been impacted by someone’s drug and alcohol use and is free of charge. 

It provides relevant information about a drug &/or alcohol dependency, family responses, the change process and recovery. We aim to support a shift of focus from the challenges you are facing to a new way of living.

“I was extremely hungry for information and knowledge. I could not have asked for more!  With so much invaluable content to absorb, I now feel very relieved that I am much better equipped to cope with the uncertainty of the future.  I now feel much more empowered and confident about being able to communicate with my son in a more effective manner whenever I have the opportunity to do so – and I am very enthusiastic about not allowing my automatic negative thought patterns to run wild while being kept in the dark about his welfare.”
