Just months after moving onto the Mona Vale Hospital campus, the Kedesh Rehabilitation Services team is supporting a large number of people with drug and alcohol addiction issues.
Close to 100 people a year will go through a six-week program and receive help through counselling and case management.
Kedesh Rehabilitation Services CEO Mark Buckingham (pictured) said the program involves intensive support, focusing on clients’ strengths, planning for the future and avoiding high-risk situations.
"Our service partners with the University of Wollongong which means all of our practices are evidenced-based," Mark said.
"We have the data to show that our approach is making a positive impact on people’s lives, improving their wellbeing, quality of life and overall function.
