Foundation House has been operating a range of outpatient drug and alcohol services for many years, as well as drug, alcohol and gambling groups. These services support our clients who are in full-time employment or aren’t otherwise suited for the 28-day residential rehabilitation service.

Available to Health Service Union and construction industry members, these programs provide effective support to clients on an outpatient or group basis to help them engage suitable treatment options, which can include harm minimisation or abstinence.

Foundation House outpatient clients receive a comprehensive assessment, which forms the framework of a personal or individual treatment plan, along with a range of support spanning skills development, referrals, counselling and addiction recovery strategies designed to achieve the clients treatment goals.

In addition, Foundation House has a well-established Problem Gambling Group on a Thursday evening which is open to the public. We ask people attending the group to be alcohol and drug free when attending as clients from the residential program may attend the group.

The group works with clients to identify excessive gambling and associated or underlying problems, and provides support and strategies for the client, such as harm minimisation plans or abstinence.

“Every day I’d say Im not going to drink today, when I came here I was a broken person, but they taught me how to love myself again and how to respect myself.”

Dennis, Foundation House Client.
