(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

"I was introduced to the Drug ARM program in my first stay at DASSA at Glenside. The approach of not abstinence based but harm minimisation is what inspired me to join the program.

So far I have found my counsellors both inspiring and educational.

My drinking is slowly coming under some level of control. The non-judgmental environment and complete freedom of speech is essential to my recovery, I am most grateful for the opportunity to receive any help for my journey. "

Dear Thankful CAFSS Client,

Great to hear that your experience with the CAFSS program has been positive from the very beginning.

It's fantastic that the Harm Minimisation approach has worked so well for you and is what has encouraged you to seek treatment with our program. It definitely sounds like this has been a great fit with the progress you have made so far - keep up the amazing work!

Kind regards,
