Counselling can be accessed face-to-face, online or through telephone, for individuals and/or families, as well as group counselling and group programs. Case Management (known in the Alcohol and Other Drug sector as Care & Recovery co-ordination) seeks to support treatment pathways for high-risk clients who have multiple and complex needs.
It is very common for people with a drug and alcohol problem to also have a mental health issue. Having both a mental health issue and a drug and alcohol problem is often called “dual diagnosis”.
It is often difficult to get the help needed when someone has a dual diagnosis. At Odyssey House we have a commitment to providing relevant and effective services for people who have a mental health issue, in addition to their drug or alcohol problems. As part of this, we offer all our clients mental health screening and appropriate treatment options.
