Program Overview   

Participants residing at ONE80TC will start their recovery journey by participating in a Transition Group.

The Transition Group helps participants build a foundation for long-term recovery. During this phase participants will be focus on topics such as:

  • Stages-of-Change
  • Cycle-of-Addiction
  • Goal Setting
  • Social Skills – Communication, Conflict Resolution
  • Self Identity
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Understanding – Depression, Anxiety, Shame, Anger
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Smoking Cessation
Graduating the Induction Phase

Once the Transition Group is completed, the students move into the program. It is at this stage most of the participants realise that it is going to take more time, education, training and practical experience to break-the-cycle-of-addiction.

The program will provide additional learning opportunities through individual self-paced programs, 12-step programs, group and team activities including applying the skills learned during the Transition Group. Further support is provided with one-on-one mentoring by case workers, counselling with our psychologists and the support of other trained staff.

The next phases of the program will be negotiated with the participants’ case worker. Contracts will be established based on the participants’ goals. The participants’ goals will usually fit within the following themes:

  • Self-Identity
  • Family and Relationships
  • Personal Development
  • Work and Responsibilities  

Life Skills Training:
We believe that people with jobs have greater self-esteem and confidence, however, training is essential. To position themselves for success, our participants enjoy personal development, work detail and vocational opportunities.

We strongly believe in teamwork, and the importance of each participant’s role on the team. Our hope is that they will build support structures and friendships that will last for a lifetime.

Family Reconciliation:
People who are caught up in destructive lifestyles often wreak havoc on their relationships with family and friends. Through counselling and guidance the ONE80TC team aims to help families reconnect.

Our psychologists are committed to restoring hope and stability in the participants’ lives, and are passionate about helping them along the journey of recovery. Through weekly one-on-one and group sessions, participants are given the chance to address some of their previous hurts. We also provide relationship counselling for those who are married or with partners.

No Turning Back


Program Completion:

Completion of the program is based on each individual working through the completion of their contracts and goals over 12 months. We celebrate this achievement with a Graduation Ceremony inviting family to come and celebrate with the students.
