Residents in the RSS bus

(Us on the RSS bus on the way to somewhere important)

Recovery Support Services offers a balance between support and independence; residents have the opportunity to recover with a group of like-minded people while living in the community. RSS believes that making new friends, helping others and building a fun and balanced life is essential to long term recovery.

Our houses are ordinary houses and units in the community. Some of them are mixed gender and others are specifically for men or women. Our residents cook and clean for themselves, get about by public transport and manage their own lives out of program hours.

The RSS day program is a mixture of groups, recreation, attending community-based support meetings and having regular contact with staff. It runs from 10.30 – 3.30 Monday to Friday and there are some evening activities.

Each resident sets their own recovery goals; these can include returning to work and study, regaining the trust of people they love, reconnecting with family, becoming healthy and working on psychological issues as well as enjoying life to the full.

RSS staff are not only qualified Alcohol and Other Drug professionals, they are in recovery themselves and have insight and understanding available only to those who have lived through the experience.
