The Peppers Therapeutic aims to provide an opportunity for clients and peers to experiencing personal challenges to support positive lifestyle change. There will also be opportunities for recreation, sporting and social activities. The initial six-week induction focus is on education, group work, experiencing the benefits of a drug-free lifestyle and gaining an understanding of basic human behaviours and developing healthy life skills.
The emphasis during the second stage is on emotional and spiritual growth with the support of other residents and staff. It is a time of increased feelings of self-worth, gaining self-confidence in decision-making and learning through mistakes. It is also a time of restructuring lifestyles, developing healthy attitudes and activities and setting realistic goals and assuming greater responsibility for personal recovery.
Stage three is a transitional phase when residents begin the process of exiting the program and moving into after-care and the outside Community.
Therapeutic group work is designed to teach new skills and redevelop old skills to enable residents to cope with stresses, emotions, conflicts and the general ups and downs of life. Groups included are anger management and other emotions, conflict resolution skills, relapse prevention, relaxation techniques, anxiety and stress reduction, self-esteem and relationship skills.
