Primary Therapist & Family Therapist
Since 1973, TaskForce has provided specialist support for people in serious need in Victoria. Our core services focus on addressing social issues of addiction, unemployment, mental health and high risk taking behaviours, supporting our clients to transition back into "mainstream" services and supports.
The people who access our services have experienced significant disadvantage or a crisis in their lives and as a result are prevented from reaching their potential.
Two years ago, TaskForce added the Reset Life Program to the suite of services offered to clients ready to take the next step in their addiction recovery. This is an intensively supported program for youth,
based on the Matrix program that has achieved high levels of success and quality outcomes for young people
About the program
ResetLife is a highly structured program, with young people divided in to two cohorts (11–16-year-olds and 17-24 year old) attending 3 days at our Youth Hub for individual and group treatment, and encouraged to attend informal support (specifically SMART Recovery and 12-step programs) on other days. The structured program involves 16 weeks of intensive treatment, followed by 16 weeks continuing care. In the first 16 weeks, participants attend:
- Individual/family therapy sessions
- Early recovery skills group (psycho-education on skills to achieve sobriety)
- Relapse prevention group (2x per week for specific skills to prevent relapse)
- Youth education group (information to encourage ongoing abstinence)
- Social support (building social skills for a healthier life)
