WE CARE offers counselling and programmes for all forms of addictions including drug, alcohol, gambling, sex, eating disorder, internet and shop-lifting. It is also a community-based drop-in centre for the recovering individuals. By providing a safe environment, our clients are able to work on their recovery.
Our Centre is staffed with professional counsellors who provide one-to-one counselling. We also facilitate addiction-related programmes to community agencies and various halfway houses. We also conduct awareness talks, community education and prevention outreach to the public and corporate agencies. WE CARE runs family workshops and education as to how best to support the affected love ones. WE CARE is also a pioneer in treating the Atypical Theft Offenders who steals compulsively.
Crisis intervention is another important component of our services. We contact clients within 24 hours. We serve more than 200 people a month with our programmes and counseling and nearly 500 recovering people and their families attend various self-help support groups a month.
