WE CARE Community Services Limited is the first non-denominational outpatient addiction treatment centre in Singapore. We offer counselling and programmes for all forms of addictions including drug, alcohol, gambling, sex, eating disorder, internet and shop-lifting. We also run a community-based drop-in centre for the recovering individuals to socialise with other recovering persons. Within this safe and non-judgemental environment, our clients are able to work on their recovery.
Our Centre is staffed with professional counsellors who provide one-to-one and family 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 on how best to support the affected love ones.
Crisis intervention is another important component of our services. And we do our best to contact clients soon after they contact or reach out to us.
We also organise activities such as art classes, IT training, language coaching, and so on, so our clients can occupy themselves with healthy pursuits. Skills like money management and Microsoft Office are also taught to help our clients prepare for integration back into the community.
