On International Men’s Day, we focus on positive male role models and their contribution to their families and communities. Many of our clients are acutely aware that they have been absent or have caused trauma in their children’s lives and it is one of the main reasons given for why people with addiction seek treatment. Often, strong male role models were absent in their own lives, creating a generational impact.
Addiction recovery is a long hard road and a daunting journey for people without a strong motivation to succeed. Health, both physical and mental, is also in the spotlight on this day. People with addictions, especially long-term, come to our clinic at 65 Townshend Rd, Subiaco with numerous health issues. Fresh Start works with the whole person and tailors an individualised treatment program to address other issues that can hamper recovery.
