South Pacific Private is Australia’s leading treatment centre for addiction. We recognise that completing a residential rehabilitation program or putting down the substance or stopping the behaviour is an amazing achievement! We also know how important it is that a person receives ongoing care and support to break the addiction cycle in early recovery and continue on their road to abstinence.
The Relapse Prevention Program is designed to assist participants to navigate their recovery and provides them with the tools, education and ongoing accountability to prevent potential relapses and/or assist those who have relapsed into recommitting to their program with the support of others.
This program is facilitated by qualified and experienced clinicians who provide a wealth of knowledge and support in addiction recovery.
