WE CARE Community Services is an addiction recovery centre funded by charity. We provide support and treatment programmes for all forms of addiction, including drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex, shoplifting, gaming and internet and various other compulsive behaviours. Our services are open to all who need help in coping with an addictive disorder. We also serve to assist family members who need guidance and support.
Seeking help, especially for the first time, can be daunting. When you arrive at our centre, a trained counsellor will conduct a screening and assessment interview. This interview helps us to understand the severity of your problem, major life areas, your personal risks and hidden strengths. At the end of the interview, the counsellor will discuss the assessment results. A customised treatment plan can be formulated if the individual chooses to seek our counselling services.
Our counsellors are addiction-trained staff who have at least a Master's degree in Counselling or Psychology. WE CARE does not deploy volunteers as counsellors.
A referral to suitable agencies will be made for services that WE CARE is not providing (residential accommodation, medical detoxification, etc).
