DRUG ARM Australasia is a specialist, non-Government, AOD agency, based upon Christian principles.
The Drug and Alcohol Treatment Service (DATS) enables people to access professional support face-to-face or via telephone. This service offers individuals assistance in addressing any issues relating to their own use of alcohol and other drugs.
You might use DATS if you:
feel you need to talk to someone about what’s going on in your life
could use some support while clarifying your goals and future direction
are worried about your mental health or feeling down or stressed
would like information and education about alcohol and other drugs
are feeling isolated or alone and want to increase your support networks
want to reduce your drug and/or alcohol use
What service is provided?
The Drug and Alcohol Treatment Service (DATS Program) is a comprehensive and structured outpatient alcohol and other drug treatment service for individuals with multiple and complex needs. The service delivers intensive clinical support for people 18 years and over who require ongoing treatment to overcome, or manage harms associated with alcohol and other drugs. The program provides assessment, case management, case formulation, counselling, detox support, psycho-education, social skills training, relapse prevention, and referral strategies. The program is delivered in a welcoming, non-judgmental and confidential environment. Client participation in the DATS program is voluntary.
A DATS episode involves interventions over 12 weekly one hour sessions. Clients seeking support can be seen for up to four consecutive episodes, approximately one year of continued treatment. As the program is voluntary, clients may choose to withdraw before the completion of 12 sessions.
Who provides the service?
A qualified clinical worker will deliver the program sessions. Drug ARM staff are trained in up-to-date counselling practices and techniques. All of the staff are supported by DRUG ARM Australasia to engage in ongoing professional development and supervision. DRUG ARM Australasia is committed to continuous improvement and the provision of effective services.
Feedback and complaints
Periodically workers will ask you questions about how you rate your session. You can also give feedback using a client feedback form and ask at any time about our grievance procedure.
