This innovative program run by The Buttery will be offered in Tweed Heads starting on 7th May. The need for such as program is clear with demand for the programs in Lismore and Byron Bay exceeding available places.

The Buttery’s Program Manager Krystian Gruft said the program allows people requiring alcohol and other drug rehabilitation to attend on a daily basis while continuing to live in the community, maintaining their social connections, roles and responsibilities.

“We are trying to help people who can’t go into a long live-in program but who need more support than what they can get by seeing a counsellor once a week”.

The program is offered over six weeks during school hours five days per week to allow also for single parents to attend.

“The CORE programs offered so far showed impressive results with a previously unheard of 95% completion rate and highly positive outcomes,” said Krystian.
