We believe passionately that people can change…

We work with police, courts and prisons to provide assessments, counselling and support to help offenders address their drug and alcohol problems.

These programs only work with people referred to us through the justice system, you cannot self refer.

Our teams run programs at Queensland correctional centres.

And we work with offenders who have been referred to us by their arresting police officer or court officer or are seeing us as part of their bail condition.

These programs are aimed at reducing alcohol and drug related offences and giving people a second chance to turn their lives around.
