WE CARE Community Services Limited is the first non-denominational outpatient addiction treatment centre in Singapore. WE CARE offers counselling and programmes for all forms of addictions including drug, alcohol, gambling, sex, eating disorder, internet and shop-lifting. It is also a community-based drop-in centre for the recovering individuals. By providing a safe environment, our clients are able to work on their recovery.
Our Centre is staffed with professional counsellors who provide one-to-one counselling. We also facilitate addiction-related programmes to community agencies and various halfway houses. We also conduct awareness talks, community education and prevention outreach to the public and corporate agencies. WE CARE runs family workshops and education as to how best to support the affected love ones. WE CARE is also a pioneer in treating the Atypical Theft Offenders who steals compulsively.
