Introducing Our Services
OUR OUTPATIENT PROGRAMS
While we understand that taking the first step to seeking support with your substance abuse and addiction concerns is a big deal, we believe there is no need for it to be daunting or overwhelming. That is why the Action stage of the program eases you into the process with one session per week with your therapist over 12 weeks. During this time, you will be provided with practical tools and strategies to implement in your daily life around stress and other big emotions. Often it is these big emotions that lead to drug and alcohol use, so by taking action to combat those stressful feelings it reduces the push to drink or use.
The Empowered Recovery program is The TARA Clinic’s premium private outpatient recovery program which is broken up into three stages you will progress through; Action, Resilience and Purpose.
After getting a handle on more helpful ways of handling stress and high-pressure situations, the next step is to build resilience around the substance abuse and addiction behaviours specifically.
The Resilience stage of the program runs over 6 months and is both online and in person and provides you with practical tools and strategies to manage cravings, urges and understand your triggers. When you have a clear understanding of what addiction is, how it progresses over time and what your early warning signs are you are better equipped to bounce back from a lapse by learning from it rather than beating yourself up over it.
There simply isn’t enough time in the day to spend it judging yourself.
Finally, we believe that building a life filled with direction, connection and purpose will provide you with the framework to manage your recovery into the future.
The Purpose stage of the program also runs over 6 months and is provided both online and face to face to ensure you have all the support you need to implement the changes you’re making.
Building a strong awareness of your values and goals will allow you to redefine your identity in a meaningful way while fostering the confidence in your ability to maintain your recovery into the future.
OUR COUNSELLING SERVICES
We understand that not everyone wants to be a part of a program so we provide individual counselling services for people who would prefer to have a more ad hoc approach to their recovery support process.
Our therapists have a range of knowledge and experience in different areas associated with substance abuse and addiction such as anxiety, low mood, trauma, intimacy and relationship problems.
OUR OTHER SERVICES
From time to time clients who are attending The TARA Clinic require summary reports for court matters in either criminal or family court.
If you require a report for court, speak with your therapist about the matter as they will require a formal request directly from your legal team outlining the information required. Once you have provided written consent to have your information provided to the third party, your therapist will complete the required report and send this to your legal team directly.
It is important to note that your therapist will require the formal written request from your legal representative a minimum of four weeks prior to the scheduled court date to allow them time to complete the report.
