Participants, on completion of assessment, will join all aspects of the Pre Entry Group programme structure along with attending weekly case working sessions. Within case working sessions they will develop a care plan with an assigned case worker. Participants attending the Pre-Entry programme will be supported by staff to develop their motivation as a force towards progressing into the Medically Assisted Recovery Stabilisation (MARS) programme .
The Pre-Entry programme is a rolling group programme that involves attending one weekly case working session and attendance at group sessions over 5 group days weekly to develop a care plan with SMART goals. Once a participant has completed the Pre-Entry Programme and removed all illicit/non-prescribed substances, they may progress onto the MARS programme or may determine they would like to attend a residential detox/treatment programme.
DROP will also support individuals to develop a sense of the routine and behaviour needed to engage in
the CE programme, and to familiarise individuals with working in a group setting with other group
participants. All group participants can commence the programme and their time will be monitored and following six weeks they will attend for case review with their case worker and the team leader.
In the programme, the supports and interventions will include:
If you do not have a medical card or bank account you will be assisted in making applications.
You are also encouraged to attend other support groups like NA, CA, AA or Smart Recovery in your community.
