New Services in TCA


We are expanding our Adult Service to offer Befriending to clients who have been through the counselling process and feel that they would benefit from additional support. This is particularly helpful for clients who feel isolated from society and perhaps need support with accessing activities that would help them integrate more fully into society as part of their recovery journey. Would you be interested in becoming a volunteer Befriender? Find out more

Family Sessions 

We are now offering family sessions, which provide an opportunity for some or all family members to come together to discuss the issues around a loved one’s alcohol use, substance use or gambling. During the sessions we negotiate the ground rules for the family and work together as a team, discussing everyone’s concerns and agree on the support that can be provided by each family member and the group as a whole. Read the leaflet for more information.
