Below is a brief breakdown of the Empowered Recovery Group program and an idea of what you can gain from getting started.

How does the program run?


There are three parts to the program:

  1. Each week you will receive access to an online learning lesson introducing a specific skill, concept or strategy taught by our founder and psychologist, Tara Hurster.

    - Each lesson is released on Friday afternoon to give you the opportunity to practice the strategy over the weekend, when most people tend to be more vulnerable.

  2. You are then encouraged to practice the tool or strategy in the lead up to your online group session where you have the opportunity to discuss your wins and challenges with the group.

    - Our stepped down approach starts with weekly group sessions for 5 months, then fortnightly sessions for 5 months and finally to monthly sessions for 5 months. This provides you with more support in the early stages of the process and more opportunity to build confidence in your abilities towards the end.

  3. In addition to this, you will participate in a monthly individual session with your therapist on your individualised treatment plan. Your first individual session will always be scheduled for the week prior to your first group session. This ensures you are given all the information you will need to get the best out of your program.

     If you would like additional Supplementary Sessions with your therapist, this can be arranged at an additional investment of $115 per session. 

The Purpose:

Knowledge is power, so our main focus is on educating you with the important information to allow you to understand what your body and brain are doing, why you feel that way, and how to manage it!

Below is an outline of the tools and strategies that are taught through the program:

Take Action:

Lessons include -  Understanding the brain, Understanding addiction, Language, Stages of change, Externalising the problem, Communication styles, Decision matrix, Lapse management, HALT, Cravings vs urges, Grounding, Anger vs aggression, Problem solving, Goal setting, The Duck Path, Lapse prevention, Communication process, Money management, and many more!

Build Resilience:

Lessons include - Mindfulness, Breathing exercises, Emotional intelligence, Refusal skills, Stopping vs changing, Triggers, Lapse vs relapse, Comfort zones, Grief surrounding addiction, Sleep hygiene, Interpersonal effectiveness skills, Resilience window, Finding ‘good enough’, Unhelpful thinking styles, Dramatising a neutral situation, Maintaining traction and many more!

Program Length:

We refuse to set you up for failure! The research has shown that people require between 12-18 months of active work on recovery for the best predictor of lasting change. 

That is why the Empowered Recovery Program runs for 16 months.

We have seen countless people, possibly just like you, who have tried counselling for a short time or attended rehab briefly and then found themselves in the same place as before just months later. 

We want to help you succeed at finding the freedom you really crave. That is why we are in it for the long haul right with you. 

Anticipated Outcomes:

Upon completion you will have learnt over 65 practical skills and tools that will allow you to make the changes needed to maintain recovery in the long term. Your therapist will guide you on how to implement these strategies specifically for your needs, because we understand that you are the expert in your own life.


Payment Outline:

The Empowered Recovery Group program financial investment is completed through 12 equal monthly payments of $1,100. These payments are set up as a monthly direct debit automatic payment plan via our biller, Stripe. 

 - The program and its support runs over 16 months, though the payment plan is completed over 12 months.
