Healthy Families



Healthy Families is a 12 week residential program offered by the Council for Aboriginal Alcohol Program Services (CAAPS) which focuses on providing families with a safe and supportive environment to address alcohol and other drug use issues. The program is made up of a range of different education sessions and activities that cover alcohol and other drug use including:

Each client is assigned a case manager to help participants work towards the goals that they have set for themselves during their stay at CAAPS.

The CAAPS clinical nurse ensures that all participants entering the program receive a full health check through Danila Dilba Medical Services as well as providing appropriate referral to other allied health services.

Children who attend CAAPS with their parents participate in the CAAPS Indigenous Children's Program. Parents are supported to ensure their school aged children engage with local schools and develop effective daily routines.

Healthy Families provide an opportunity for the whole family to work together towards a better future away from substance use.
