COVID-19 Response – We’re still here for you


On Tuesday 24 March 2020, we shifted to providing telephone and online counselling and support during weekdays, temporarily ceasing face-to-face sessions. This is for all our programs including individual and group support. To make a telephone or online appointment, get in touch with your current case manager or counsellor. If you are a new client, give us a call or fill out the referral form by clicking on “Enquire Now” in above menu options.

Making Choices celebrates diversity and warmly welcomes all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and people from all cultures and countries.

Making Choices is a sustainable recovery service for adults living in the Blue Mountains and Lithgow areas. The program strengthens skills to support recovery from alcohol and drugs. Making Choices has been developed on the ideals that everybody’s recovery journey is different, everyone has the capacity to achieve recovery, recovery is a process, not a destination, and recovery is an opportunity to develop as a human being. 

The service aims to offer individualised support catered to each individual’s situation and needs, and support clients to lead fulfilling lives with meaning. Making Choices is designed to work with you, not for you.
