The New Life Program offers peer support groups for adults who want to engage in recovery from alcohol and other drug use.
The New Life Program is a six level recovery program based on thirteen affirmations. When adopted and used, these provide a new way of thinking. They are guidelines to a new way of life.
The philosophy of the program is that thought determines action. Whatever we think, eventually we act out. If our thoughts are always negative, our actions will also be negative. If our thoughts are positive, so will be our actions.
The first objective of the program is, therefore, to learn about ourselves: to recognise the negative thoughts and the destructive behaviours which led to that first drink or drug of the day.
The New Life Program is a member of the Eastern Consortium of Alcohol and Drug Services (ECADS), a network of State Government funded organisations which deliver services to people with alcohol and drug related issues.
