Programme Organisation

All our programmes follow a similar format. There is an education and discussion session in the first hour which is designed to enable people to understand the process of addiction, and the steps of recovery.

This leads into “group therapy”, which in the initial stages is a chance for people to discuss how early recovery is affecting them. The shared experience of struggles and coping is an important part of the process.

The Early Recovery Group covers 10 modules specific to achieving initial abstinence and beginning the recovery journey.

The Eight week “Intensive” Programme has 16 modules on topics useful for establishing a solid basis of recovery.

The Continuing Care Programme runs over a two year cycle and covers many aspects of achieving and maintaining an ongoing recovery lifestyle.

Education and Training

Sessions address the medical, social and behavioural aspects of alcohol and drug dependency. The impact of addiction on clients’ and their families’ lives is discussed and understood.

 

Family / Whanau Group Programme

Hanmer Clinic recognises that addiction profoundly affects families and Significant Others and provides a Family/Whanau Evening. This is held on the first Thursday of every month, from 6.00pm – 8.00pm. Family members (especially of clients attending Hanmer Clinic) are welcome to attend any, or all of the sessions.

 

Continuing Care

Addiction is often a chronic and relapsing condition, and so Continuing Care is a vital factor in the long-term success of recovery. Clients are encouraged to attend Continuing Care for at lease two years, and/or attend 12 Step meetings. Research shows this offers the best recovery outcomes.

 

Individual and Group Counselling

Therapy takes place mainly in small groups and individual counselling is arranged as required.

 

Medical Services

Hanmer Clinic Tauranga works closely with doctors experienced in alcohol and drug issues located in the area who are available for client consultation. The Clinic personnel are available to assist General Medical Practitioners supervising home detoxification. Detoxification beds are not available at Hanmer Clinic.

 

Costs

Participation in the Recovery Programmes is free, and funded by the BOP District Health Board.
